Sea Changers celebrates 10 years of support for marine projects

Marine conservation charity Sea Changers is hosting a virtual festival to mark its 10th anniversary and to highlight some of the projects it has helped fund

Sea Changers is hosting a virtual festival to showcase the projects it has been supported over the past 10 years.

The marine conservation charity was formed in 2011 by two amateur divers, Rachel Lopata and Helen Webb.

It awards grants to UK marine charities and nonprofits for conservation and research projects, proving that small amounts of money distributed across UK seas and coasts can catalyze new ideas, spark practical action and reach new audiences.

Entirely run by volunteers, Sea Changers also works with businesses and individuals to raise funds for its projects.
