Objective: To promote, for the benefit of the public, the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural marine environment and promote marine bio-diversity.
Core belief statements:
- The resources of the oceans are not limitless and the marine environment is both precious and fragile.
- The marine environment and many marine species are in crisis – action is needed now to address this.
- Human life depends on the health of the oceans – protecting the marine environment is also protecting human life and helping some of the poorest communities around the world.
- Commercial and individual sea-users do not have an inherent right to use the sea with impunity.
- Sea-users should be proactively asked give something back to the marine environment.
Sea-Changers raises money for a range of UK based, marine conservation charities and not for profit organisations. The projects funded all fall within one of the following marine conservation areas:
- Marine Reserves/Protected Marine Areas
- Direct Marine Clean-Up Action
- Education, Campaigning and Awareness
- Species Protection and Research
Successful applications receive support for projects aimed at creating a world where:
- Seas and shores are healthy and clean
- Marine species are protected and abundant
- People have a clear understanding of their impact on the marine environment and are actively encouraged to minimise this
