Every year we engage with millions of people globally through our support, our campaigns and our projects.
By embracing the connection between people, their livelihoods and life in the ocean and our coastal environments we can help communities to be aware and respect and value having a healthy ocean, whether they live and work near the coast or in the ocean or live inland, or are only occasional visitors.
Our approach is underpinned by a strong theme of evidence-based policy work, campaigning and advocating solutions backed by science.
Our Annual Impact Report and Accounts describe our key activities each year, what we’ve achieved and what plans there are for the future.
Our strategic partners and our collaboration partners are the key to our success, as are all our dedicated staff, ambassadors, members, supporters, volunteers and alternate funders.
Our Annual Impact Reports and Financial Accounts are published annually and are available on request.
