Sea Changers marks 10 years of backing marine projects

The marine conservation charity, Sea Changers is holding a virtual festival to mark their 10th anniversary and to highlight some of the projects it has helped fund

Sea Changers is holding a virtual festival to highlight the projects it has supported over the last 10 years.

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

It provides grants to UK marine charities and non-profits for conservation and research projects, proving that small sums of money distributed around the UK’s seas and shores can catalyse new ideas, seed practical action and reach new audiences.

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