For people to thrive and live life to the fullest, the ocean must thrive too. And so we need to confront all that threatens it...

We demand an end to sewage discharge into UK bathing waters by 2030.

Plastic pollution

We campaign to turn back the plastic tide choking the ocean.

We demand an end to plastic pollution on UK beaches by 2030.

Ocean recovery

We campaign to protect and restore the ocean wilderness.

We demand high protection status for 30% of the ocean and all UK Marine Protected Areas by 2030.

The ocean & climate emergency

We campaign to stop destructive global heating threatening all life in and above the ocean.

We demand that the UK achieves net zero, including the adoption of ocean-based solutions, by 2030.
