Who we are
The Marine Conservation Society fights for the future of our ocean through people-powered action - with science on our side.
Today, our ocean is in poor health because of human activity. We're determined to change this, working with communities, businesses and governments. For more than 30 years, we've been the voice of the sea, defending our coastal habitats and species. We work towards a cleaner, better-protected, healthier ocean. One we can all enjoy.
Together we can achieve our vision of seas full of life, where nature flourishes and people thrive.
What we do
We need to stop taking too much out of our sea. And we need to stop putting too much in.
For a cleaner ocean, we find ways to prevent and clean up marine litter and pollution, and we use science to track the health of our waters.
For a better-protected ocean, we secure spaces where species and habitats can recover. Only a sea full of life can absorb carbon and tackle climate change.
For a healthier ocean, we promote sustainable fishing to minimise harm caused by harvesting resources, and we education the public so consumers can make better seafood-buying choices.
