The UK's coasts and seas are home to a huge diversity of wildlife that is vital for human livelihoods and wellbeing. More...

Laws provide a strong foundation and security for the protection of our marine wildlife. More...

Seabirds spend much of their lives travelling vast distances across the oceans, crossing many international boundaries. Their protection cannot therefore be tackled effectively by single nations alone - global solutions are needed. More...
Most pollution enters the sea via rivers from land-based sources such as factories. Oil pollution also comes from offshore oil and gas platforms and from ships. We work to reduce risks to seabirds from pollution, especially oil spills. More...
The UK's seas offer an abundant source of energy in the form of wind, waves and tidal flows. Harnessing this power could make an important contribution to combatting the effects of climate change. More...
The fortunes of today's seabirds are tied up with fisheries more than any other human activity and fishing has been identified as the most widespread agent of change in global marine biodiversity. More...
We have been campaigning for over a decade for marine legislation and to have Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for seabirds. More...
Our precious seas are dying from neglect. Getting the legislation is just the first stage in delivering better protection for marine wildlife and seabirds. Your support today will help safeguard our sea life.
