How You Can Help

The seas need your help to protect them and the wonderful creatures that live there.

Here are a few ways that you can help to protect our seas:

  • Join your Wildlife Trust. Become a member of your Wildlife Trust and support conservation in your local area.
  • Show your support for Marine Conservation Zones
  • Share our vision. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about Making Waves, and ask them to help too.
  • Use environmentally friendly detergents.
  • Avoid toxic chemicals in your home and garden.
  • Reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible, and dispose of rubbish carefully including taking old engine oil to a recycling centre.
  • Buy seasonal and locally caught fish, and avoid deep water fish such as the orange roughy.
  • Don’t buy ornaments or jewellery made from marine creatures.
  • Ensure any creatures you buy for marine aquaria are bred in captivity.
  • Volunteer.  Check with your local Wildlife Trust for current marine volunteering opportunities.

Thank you for your support!
