For centuries we have taken the seas riches for granted, taking too much with too little care. Fragile habitats have been destroyed, whether ripped up by fishing gear or destroyed by industry. Less than a thousandth of 1% (0.001%) of the UKs sea area is fully protected from all damaging activities. Fish stocks have collapsed and marine resources are depleted.

But there is still time to make a difference.

This is possibly the most important period in history for marine conservation. Weve never had marine planning before - this is our chance.

Please will you help us

We need to continue the fight to save our Living Seas. We need to continue the work weve been doing to get us this far - lobbying Government, talking to fishermen and industry, holding events, campaigning to the public, surveying and monitoring our marine wildlife, educating children.

We need 35,000 to press on to pursue our goal of protecting these vital species and habitats, whilst allowing sustainable activity in the seas to continue. Please help us by making a donation so that we can persevere.

Thank you so much for your support.
