What you can do
You can make a difference from right here in the mountains.
There are many ways that you can make a difference and help our waterways and ocean.
Join an event, participate in a campaign, follow the 9 Rs, make better seafood choices, reduce your carbon footprint, become informed, or simply spread the word.
We run regular events to tell you about the ocean – the marvels in and around it, and also what we need to do to look after it. Our events are free, fun, and a great way to stay informed and motivated.
We run regular awareness-raising campaigns to encourage people to develop new habits, and we lobby retailers and local government to make change. Join a campaign in person or support a campaign online.
Knowledge is power, and by understanding more about how our actions in the mountains can negatively affect the oceans, you might have a better idea of what you can reasonably do to make a difference.

It’s not acceptable to have an elephant steak or rhino horn soup. Why? Because they’re endangered and remarkable creatures. There are lots of remarkable and endangered fish that we can choose not to eat.

I'll tell you what me scares me is plastic. Plastic bags and plastic bottles and these things. Why does my water have to be in a bloody plastic bottle? The landfill and the ocean?
