Marine Conservation


Our oceans keep us alive!

  • Oceans are a big influence on weather and climate
  • Our oceans produce half of the oxygen we breath
  • Oceans provide things that we use such as food, medicines and other materials (like the metals in our mobile phones)
  • Oceans improve our quality of life (well-being/education/fun/arts and culture)

 

Since we opened our doors in 1998, we have chosen to focus on promoting a sympathetic understanding of our oceans, tailoring our marine conservation efforts around our mission to drive marine conservation through engagement. Rather than delivering the in-situ conservation that other organisations are better placed to deliver, we’ve aspired to place ourselves as leaders in the engagement and education fields of marine conservation. We do this by guiding our visitors through a journey of discovery and learning to further understand their connection to the marine environment. Find out more about what we do below:
