Falmouth is a beautiful place with rich marine biodiversity and a thriving community. With more and more people moving to the area, we have a great opportunity to raise marine awareness and help protect the ocean we depend on.

 

We are active volunteers raising marine awareness to empower our community in protecting the local marine environment. 

 

Our Goals: 

 

Education - Engaging local schools and organisations though educational events about local marine life and cutting edge research. We hope to inspire the community in to protect the marine environment and learn how to live alongside our marine wildlife harmoniously. We work with many schools in the local area if you would like us to come talk at your school then just get in touch.  

 

Research - Collecting data and recording local wildlife sightings to support our conservation efforts and understand more about the local coast and how we can conserve it in the best way possible. We work with Natural England collecting data on Pacific Oysters, Cornwall Wildlife Trust on their Seaquest, Shore Search and Marine Strandings Projects as well as working along the University of Exeter in our new Seagrass Project.

 

Events and Campaigns - Inspiring and educating the local community through fun and motivational events. Please check our event page to see what new events we have coming up.

 

Business - Collaborating with business to improve the Falmouth marine environment by helping them decrease their negative impact. We run out Refill which is a campaign to reduce the amount of single use plastic bottles in Falmouth, if you would like to be a refill station or stock our bottles then please get in touch.
