MARINElife has an incredibly important role to play in the protection of our invaluable coast and seas. The work that their dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers do to collect information on the distribution of both cetaceans and sea birds helps managers and policy makers make important and informed decisions about marine management and conservation.

Their work also helps to raise awareness of an aspect of our seas that few people appreciate - we have a fantastic selection of whales, dolphins and sea birds in our waters that some people might assume you have to travel abroad to see! Through this understanding and appreciation of our thriving coastal waters comes a desire to protect and conserve our local coastal environment. This is vital as we face a time where our seas are facing continued pressure from fisheries, climate change and other man made issues.

It is for these reasons that I am thrilled to become the patron for MARINElife and continue to raise awareness about their fantastic work and our stunning seas!
