Saving our seas. Together.

From shoresearch surveys to beach cleans and marine mammal watches there are an exciting range of activities for you to become involved with. We’re also looking for volunteers to help with engagement events and collecting marine memories.

You don’t need a background in science to become involved! Training and support is provided by our Living Seas staff and volunteer team.

Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity for you to experience Wales’ amazing marine life, meet new people, inspire others to value the sea and contribute towards marine conservation. Spending more time outdoors through volunteering can also increase your health and well-being.
