ocean conservation

We forget that we are made up of the same atoms as the oceans and the trees. Indeed 80% of the oxygen in the air we breathe is provided by our Ocean and so the health of our waterways is imperative for our own wellbeing and is not an optional extra.

I used to think that the global issues facing our  wild spaces are for someone else to fix and definately too big for me to influence.  But then I learnt about the ripple effect and well frankly ~ if not now, when and if not you, who?

Our Partners and projects:

Surfers Against Sewage

Surfers Against Sewage

Regional Representative & Reps Officer @ SAS HQ

I joined the Team at Surfers Against Sewage in July 2023 as a Communities Officer in charge of the national regional representatives volunteer programme.  I’m super proud of the work that our volunteers do to raise the profile of water quality and plastic pollution issues and solutions.  I’m involved in redefining the programme, facilitating converstions and events and inspiring our passionate volunteers to make a difference.  We are more than Surfers and it is more than Sewage.  Leading the fight from the beach front to the front bench to create ocean advocates everywhere.
