MARINElife policy in response to Novel Coronavirus 'COVID-19' - updated 10/05/2020

MARINElife is continually monitoring the NHS medical advice and the UK Government response to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the UK. We have therefore reviewed our position as of 10th May 2020 following the latest anouncement of the government at 7pm on 10/05/2020

We have a duty of care to our volunteers and event attendees and a responsibility to play our part in containing the virus. As a precautionary measure, it has been decided by the Board of Trustees to continue to keep in place the suspension of ALL ACTIVITIES UNTIL at least 30TH June 2020. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes all talks, training sessions, face-to-face meetings, surveys and Wildlife Officer trips.

Please note that some public engagements may resume from 4th July following the latest government update. These will be conducted with strict C19 safety procedures. Details of upcoming activities that can safely go ahead in England will be posted on the website and our social media channels.

Any immediate survey related queries should be directed to Updates regarding the MARINElife position will be provided as the situation progresses.

Our policy is that we (as a minimum) follow the advice issued by the NHS (and NHS Scotland) which can be found at:



Many thanks for your co-operation and understanding.

Board of Trustees, MARINElife
