Maintaining strong links with important charities
Currently we are working with the MCS on their “Your Seas Your Voice” campaign. This is a high profile campaign that is attempting to create Marine Protected areas around the UK. Only 1% of our waters are currently protected.
We promote the work of the charity, educate our guests on the importance of marine protected areas and focus public talks on the pressing issues that the UK Seas face. Aquarium staff members also attend talks by MCS staff to keep up to date with recent developments and successes of the project and hope to gain an even stronger relationship with the charity in the near future.
We enjoy great relationships with many other high profile charities and are constantly liaising with them to get involved in up and coming projects. Here are some of the charities we are currently working with:
SEA LIFE London supports petitions and awareness events aiming to secure the future of whales and dolphins across the world. We are in constant contact with the WDCS, collecting petition signatures, holding whale conservation events and attending peaceful anti-whaling protests.
