Get hands on with MCS right on your doorstep and become a local Sea Champion!
You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of marine issues, all you need is a love of the sea and a desire to take action to help us preserve it.
You can get involved in any way you like from campaigning to fundraising, talking to people at local events, spotting wildlife or cleaning a beach. Our four MCS Sea Champion Co-ordinators cover most of the UK and would love to tell you more.

UK seas and their wildlife are in trouble. Ongoing damage from certain fishing and industrial activities threatens the future of marine wildlife and seabed habitats. Less than 1% of our waters are within ‘national parks’ of the sea – pathetic protection for a precious resource.
MCS is calling for a network of 127 Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) around England, and more protected sites set up in Scotland and Wales. To achieve this we need YOU to pledge your support NOW and help us stir UK governments into action.
Sign up now to support our call to governments so they can’t do a U-turn on marine conservation. The future of our seas depends on us.
Beach litter is unsightly, dangerous to humans and wildlife and is increasing all the time. Cleaning beaches is a vital part of the work MCS does in its fight against pollution around our shores and coastal waters.
Beaches are being cleaned and surveyed by our dedicated organisers and volunteers throughout the year all around the UK.
The more people we can get cleaning beaches, the more evidence we can gather to show governments just how serious the beach litter issue is and how vital it is they act now.
