Sea-Changers on Tour

In December 2017 Sea-Changers Co-Founders, Helen Webb and Rachel Lopata  were lucky enough to spend a few fantastic days in Cornwall and visit a couple of projects that Sea-Changers supported in their latest round of grants; Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust and Polzeath Marine Conservation Group. Twice a year Sea-Changers allocates grants to a range of vital marine conservation projects that are based right around UK shores. The projects are varied in aim and size but they all have one thing in common. They are run by groups or individuals who are passionate about the marine environment and really want to have a positive impact on marine conservation. The two projects we visited were no exception to this.

Who are Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust?

Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust (CSGRT) is an evidence based conservation charity (founded in 2004) supporting a large network of active citizen scientists across the south west UK routinely surveying seals on their local patch. This enables CSGRT to learn more about grey seals, a globally rare marine mammal that the UK has a special legal responsibility to protect. Over the past 17 years they have encouraged everyone to send in their seal sightings with a date and location enabling CSGRT to build grey seal photo ID catalogues of each individual’s unique fur pattern effectively tracking them for life. Boat surveys gather important data from numerous offshore islands within the Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs). Understanding how seals move through MCZs across the Celtic Sea is key to informing conservation and management. CSGRT monitors three designated MCZs within 115km of the north Cornish coast recording all marine megafauna and the quality and condition of habitat. The  Sea-Changers grant will fund one of their 12 vital annual boat surveys. The information gathered is analysed and summarised in a formal report for each survey and made available free to groups and agencies that need the data and to help our government formulate and manage maritime protection.

We met Mike and Sue from the CSGRT at a seal site in West Cornwall. The site is based on National Trust property and they are keen to ensure some protection to the seals and so don’t publicly publish the site details – so we won’t either. Too much human activity can and does spook the seals. We met Sue Sayer, Founder of the charity and walked to the secluded beach. The site that greeted us was mind blowing and wonderful – lots of seals lazing on the beach. We settled down with Mike and Sue to watch the seals. I’ll be honest and say at first glance there does not look to be much activity but when you take time to settle, watch and observe it was fascinating: seals, playing in the water, play fighting with each other, moving around to find a good spot on the beach, snoozing, watching. And every seal is so different in color, size, markings. I imagine if you get to know them through regular visits you would identify different personalities too. Many of the seals were ones that Mike and Sue recognised from previous surveys. Some were seals they has rescued from plastic that had been caught around their necks. It was shocking to able to see so many seals on the beach who have been affected by human activity with scars around their necks or still caught by fisheries related  plastic.

Who are Polzeath Marine Conservation Group?

The Polzeath Marine Conservation Group is passionate about protecting and enhancing the special marine environment in Polzeath.  The Group runs a wide range of fun and informative activities around Polzeath, as well as hands on conservation action, and hopes to raise awareness of the wealth of marine life living there, its importance and how everyone can work together to help protect it.
The Sea-Changers grant will contribute to the cost of an Outdoor Tubular Bottle Filling Station. This will be installed at the top of Polzeath Beach and be accessible to everyone. Visitors and the local community will have access to quick, easy, clean drinking water. Water bottles can be refilled instead of purchasing more bottled water. Polzeath is an area of outstanding natural beauty and in a marine conservation zone. During the summer, plastic litter soars as tourists and the local community enjoy the beautiful beach. At present there are no sources of drinking water available to the public. Thousands of tourists who arrive on Polzeath Beach during the summer either bring an adequate supply of water with them to the beach or buy bottled water from take away cafes etc. The council owned beach rubbish bins soon overflow with waste people leave behind, so with the action of gulls and the tides it ends up in the sea. It is hoped that this initiative will be sustained by encouraging similar groups to install water stations on their Cornish beaches.

We met with a number of volunteers from Polzeath Marine Conservation Group (PMCG) including Tina Robinson who runs the project. Like the CSGRT (and Sea-Changers) this is a volunteer run group that would not exist without the personal energy and commitment of some great and really knowledgeable people. They operate from a small building just off Polzeath Beach which contains a lovely exhibition and as well as installing the water fountain they run regular education events such as rock pooling rambles  and organise beach clean activities. If you are in Polzeath during the warmer months do pop along to their marine centre, say hello and have a look around.

As likeminded organisations CSGRT and PMCG collaborate on numerous projects including sharing the organisation and analysis of one of the sections surveyed by boat. Partnership work increases value for money and has a much greater impact. It is something Sea-Changers love and would like to see happening all around UK coasts. 

Over the past five years Sea-Changers has funded over 100 amazing projects around the UK. We would love to go and meet all the projects we fund, thank the people involved for all the hard work, learn more about why they want to make a difference to our seas, what drives them to do this often with little or no financial reward but we, as volunteers ourselves simply don’t have the time or resources to do that. But it was fantastic to spend a couple of days in Cornwall and meet up with wonderful people like Sue, Mike and Tina and hear about the amazing work they are doing. On days when I read another report about problems in the oceans, I can feel motivated and inspired by them, and other people like them who are doing so much to keep our seas healthy and be Sea-Changers.

Join Pure Latitude in becoming a Sea-Changer and do your bit for Marine Conservation!

You love the sea? If I am right, I want to ask you to become a Sea-Changer in 2018. I am asking you to become a Sea-Changer by taking some small practical actions to demonstrate your love for the sea and give something back in return for all the fabulous hours you have spent on or near the water.
Read on….
Pure Latitude, the popular boat club,  have just become the latest company to support Sea-Changers and work with us to raise money for UK marine conservation projects. They give all their members the chance to make an optional donation to marine conservation projects as they pay their membership fees. They give the money raised to Sea-Changers and we allocate every single penny they give to projects that we know will make a real difference to UK seas. To find out more about how we fund and who we fund visit our website. And Pure Latitude wants you to join them in being a Sea-Changer by taking small, everyday actions that can benefit our seas.

Ways to be a Sea-Changer #1.
Let’s start with an easy one….make Sea-Changers’ Facebook page your own.
  • Post your marine conservation stories, ideas and thoughts on our Facebook page. Inspire others to take action for the sea.
  • Share, like and comment on Sea-Changers’
  • Get involved by posting your own suggestions on how to change the sea for the better.
  • Recommend the page to five of your friends.
Ways to be a Sea-Changer #2. 
Buy only sustainable fish. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048.  Industrial fishing has depleted stock of tuna, cod, swordfish and marlin by as much as 90 percent. One choice we have, is to eat less fish. Another is to only buy fish that is from well-managed sustainable sources. Download the Marine Conservation Society Good Fish Guide to ensure you make great fish choices.

Ways to be a Sea-Changer #3.
Clean a beach. There are some great beach clean events to get involved in and it is a fantastic way to make a very practical difference. If you are UK based check out Marine Conservation Society and their Beachwatchscheme .

Ways to be a Sea-Changer #4.
Be green when sailing on the blue. Recreational boating can generate pollution and environmental problems. As more and more of us take to the water we risk damaging the sea but there are some simple steps we can take to ensure we keep our environmental impact low. Areas to consider include:
  • How to use oils and fuel
  • Which cleaning products have low environmental impact
  • Disposing of waste carefully
  • Ensuring you dispose of sewage correctly, and
  • Respecting  wildlife whilst out on the water
The Green Blue offers some great advice to sailors about minimising their environmental impact so visit their website.

Ways to be a Sea-Changer #5.
Buy a Reusable Bottle. 12,500 plastic bottles are thrown away every 8.3 seconds. Many end up on our beaches or in our seas. Even better, buy a Water-to-Go bottle using our discount code. This will give you clean, safe filtered water, anytime, anywhere. Buying a Water-to-Go bottle has always had environmental benefits since it reduces the need to buy bottled mineral water but you can get get a 15% discount on every Water-to-Go order and at the same time 15% of the value of your purchase will be donated to Sea-Changers. To buy your bottles just go to www.watertogo.eu and enter SEACHANGERS as a discount code when you get to the checkout.

Ways to be a Sea-Changer #6.
Raise money for Sea-Changers and marine conservation whilst doing your shopping online. Sign up to easyfundraising or Give as you Live and raise money to fund our work with every purchase.

We would love it if you join in, post your own ideas or comment on Twitter and Facebook. If you tweet just tag  #BeASeaChanger & we'll share!

Tourism can help threatened turtle populations in the Maldives - Richard Aspinall reports.

There’s nothing like spending time underwater with a reef full of turtles, it’s easy to forget yourself as your scuba cylinders get ever emptier and the turtles eye you cautiously, more interested in dozing and perhaps rubbing against a piece of coral to remove a troubling pest, than they are in one of the many divers that visit them, keen to see the Green Turtles of Kuredhu.

To my left the ancient rock that underpins the atoll descends deeper into the channel, the Kandu as the locals call it, and to the right, there are layers of reef.  Long shelves of rock and coral, fractured and riven by time.  In and amongst this scenery the turtles sleep.  Later, in the tropical night they will explore the shallow reefs to graze on sea grass, their primary food source, staying shallow and avoiding with luck, the free-floating discarded fishing gear that ensnares many of their relatives.

I’m in the Maldives, on the Lhaviyani Atoll, to the north of the capital Male.  It’s the first time I’ve been back in ten years and things have changed.  Male is expanding, an influx of foreign investment, mainly from China, has seen the island grow as a lagoon is filled in, to make way for a new airport.  An artist’s impression of the capital to come, is rich in glass and steel.  I’m reminded of Dubai or Doha and a flier I find in the airport makes it clear that the Maldives is open to investment and development.

It’s easy to be despondent about the Maldives’ embrace of mass market tourism and the impact it will have on fragile ecosystems already threatened by coral bleaching events and ocean acidification.  A bleaching event in summer 2016 has left many of the reefs of the northern atolls significantly degraded.  An increasing number of visitors from south east Asia and the Middle east can of course secure the future of what is still a developing country, but every new resort adds pressure to a country blessed with few natural resources other than islands created and maintained by the living coral.

Despondency is commonplace amongst the marine conservation community, yet every so often there are projects that show a better way forward.  Take energy for example, Every Maldivian resort I’ve visited has its own diesel-powered generator, tastefully hidden away from tourist view of course, but still present and demanding regular fuelling.  The resort I’m staying at, Hurawalhi, is I hope, indicative of a more sustainable future.  Solar panels generate roughly thirty five percent of the resort’s electricity consumption and a desalination plant limits the need for that great scourge of the ocean, the disposable plastic water bottle.  Discarded water bottles are often seen away from the well-kept tourist beaches and many will have the remains of hermit crabs within them.  A sad analogue of lobster pots.

But back to turtles.  The resort hosts a diving centre, as most do, but what is unique, at least in my experience is the presence of a marine biologist employed by the UK charity, the Manta Trust.  The post is funded by the resort and dive centre, and indirectly by the guests.  I met Lisa, a young and enthusiastic German by birth, for a trip to snorkel with the manta rays and as we stood on the bow, looking out across the atoll’s central lagoon she told me about how diving tourism was helping wildlife.  I had been concerned about the impact sport fishing might have on sharks, and it was Lisa that first told me of the ban on commercial shark fishing, enacted in 2010 and the catch and release policy, when sharks were caught in sport fishing. I still find sport fishing unpleasant but that’s my personal view, I’m not entirely sure the stress placed on sharks during their capture, however brief, won’t have severe impacts upon their health. We chatted about the juvenile blacktip reef sharks, common in the very shallow waters around the island and how you could tell new arrivals to the resort by their reaction to these skittish fish, sheltering from predators in the shallows and how when I first visited the Maldives, shark finning was still commonplace and many tourist shops would sell you a set of shark jaws for a few dollars.  Progress has been made and live sharks are worth more than dead ones.

Soon enough we spotted mantas, three of them, cruising deep below us.  Their two procephalic fins that descend from either side of the mouth to help channel plankton towards their open gapes, were ‘stowed’ and they were not feeding.  Getting close would not be possible, I was content to watch them pass us by.

We chatted about the turtles.  “you can name one if you want.” Lisa said.  I looked puzzled.  “the greens have unique markings on the side of their heads, so get a picture and if it’s new to us, you get to name it.”    In between   leading snorkelling trips and dives Lisa is monitoring the local turtle populations, building an idea of numbers.  So far, the list shows around 100 Green turtles on the atoll and when I finally send my photos over, GRNew24 is added to the list and becomes: ‘Turtley McTurtleface’, I suspect I should be embarrassed.  

Turtley McTurtleface
Around 500 Green turtles have been identified across the Maldives, making the local population regionally significant.  The Greens are rarer than their Hawksbill cousins, around 2800 of them have been identified so far.  Some resorts have removed their sea grass ‘meadows’ to keep their beaches white with turquoise seas as websites promise, yet these habitats are fascinating and surprisingly useful in trapping sand to protect from storms and to maintain the islands’ structure.
On my last day, I hopped aboard a small boat to the nearby Island of Naifaru, a place for locals and not tourists.  I wanted to visit the Atoll Marine Centre to understand their work and see their turtle rescue centre. 

Local islands are, entirely different to tourist islands as you might imagine.  Single storey houses and shops and a new school were bustling with activity despite the tropical sun.  you can still find older buildings with walls built from coral on occasion and outside houses old plastic containers are filed with plants for colour and vegetables.  The conservation centre, staffed by European volunteers and part of a wider community project (Naifaru Juvenile), centres around a series of low, shallow tanks, each holding young turtles.  It’s feeding time, so many have been placed in old washing up bowls to feed messily on tuna, before they’re returned to the cleaner water of the main tanks.

 The team tell the visiting tourists how turtles are kept as pets by some people on the islands, and of course, there are several animals missing flippers from accident or injury.  Some turtles are in home-made cradles to keep them buoyant, entanglement with discarded fishing gear and other jetsam has left them unable to dive due to a build-up of gas between their shells and other tissue.  Over time every rehabilitated animal will be returned to the ocean.  I spend all the money I have on me in the small gift shop and ask them to keep the change.  
So many of the turtles at the centre are the Olive Ridley species.  Olive Ridley turtles spend far more of their time in the open water and are consequently much more likely to become entangled in discarded fishing gear.  Several days after my return to the UK, Lisa sent me some images of a massive ghost net ‘conglomerate’ with four Olive Ridley turtles entrapped within it.  A sickening sight.

The mass of old net, rope and plastic was brought to shore by the dive centre and disposed of properly, removing a threat that would wander the Indian Ocean for years if not dealt with and the turtles freed and released, but many more similar floating traps remain.

Lesley Foden's Round Britain Row 2017

On June the 3rd, Lesley Foden set off on a round Britain Row. Lesley is from  Newbury in Berkshire, and is 60 years old. She is undertaking the row of 1800 miles to inspire older people to exercise, raise awareness of plastic pollution in the seas and to raise funds for Lifeboats. A keen supporter of Sea-Changers and the work we do to support UK marine conservation, Lesley made time just before she set off to tell us about her row. 

Lesley, tell us about your rowing adventure?

The row is the circum-navigation of Britain starting on 3 June. It's organised by Rannoch Adventure. They build ocean rowing boats and renovate them. The person who is organising this row is Angus Collins. Angus has been in the winning crew of the last two Talisker Whisky Cross Atlantic Challenges. He has lots of experience which is why I am happy to put myself in his hands.

The row goes around Britain and takes eight weeks weather permitting. We come ashore once a week to change crew because most people involved are only doing a week or maybe two. Hence you need to come aboard once a week to swap over. I however I'm going all the way around.

During the week we are rowing it is around the clock rowing, 24 hours a day. We don't stop. The shift pattern is two hours on, two hours off. That may change, depending on conditions. During your time off you are not just sat there doing nothing. You have to take care of your needs, take care of feeding yourself, maybe preparing food for others, making sure everyone else is okay, navigating, steering, chart plotting, making sure we are on course and just generally keeping a lookout. I haven't worked out how it's going to happen yet but I'm sure system will fall into place.

Why are you taking on such a massive challenge?

It started out as a bit of an idea for attention but like all these things you soon think well actually, if I'm going to all this effort I'll make it count for something. Rannoch are raising money for RNLI, which of course I support. To me the environment is very important and I thought marine plastic pollution was a massive issue which is why I am concentrating on that, to raise awareness.

There are a lot of personal reasons why I wanted to do the row. Some of them I thought about beforehand such as showing my daughter, who is 19, that it's possible to make something happen, no matter how crazy, just keep going and if you fail it won't be because you've given up, it will be because somethings stopped you and that's fine. Some reasons have become apparent as I've gone along, learning about me, what makes me tick, what I find hard.

Hopefully seeing all the wildlife, seeing plastic. I'll be taking along a bird ID book and a marine life book. When we arrived two or three weeks ago we saw what we thought was a piece of paper floating up near the surface but it was a flounder to come up to eat. We saw lots of seals. I'm also looking forward to such a different perspective. I'm going to feel so privileged to be able to look at our island from the outside all the way around, to know I am out there looking in. Hopefully it won't be scary.

One of the things I'm going to find hardest is the psychological side of being on a small boat with four other people. No chance of escape for a week at a time. I think I'll be really ready to get off the boat at the end of that week even if it’s only for half an hour.

Will you get a chance to speak to your family as you go along?

We will have mobile phones on board. My husband is going to try to join me at at least four stops which will be great. We also have friends who have a boat and they are going to sail around with my husband and daughter to try and find us in Scotland.

I think I will probably get quite homesick for a few days just been thrown into a totally alien environment so I'm stealing myself for feeling absolutely at sea. I think once the first week is over I'll be able to start to breathe again but I'm looking forward to that moment when I'm sitting there rowing, navigating, when I'm not panicking about this. I'm doing it and I'm understanding it and I'm surviving.

Tell me more about Marine Plastics?

Plastics really are a major thing and the stats are really terrifying. I feel very passionate that I'm going to carry on with this course for ever, it's become a major thing for me, not just sea plastics but plastic in general because, of course, a lot of plastic in the ocean starts on the land.

One of the images that sticks in my mind is an albatross chick that was found half decayed with plastic sticking out of it. Someone created and arranged all the pieces of plastic on a large black background and there were 276 pieces and that's nothing. That’s happening to so much marine life and that's what we see. I think it's the tip of the iceberg. There's got to be so much more under the surface and it's got to be effecting us. It has to be effecting our health. It's certainly effecting the quality and quantity of fishing stocks. What are we eating now? We are eating what we thrown. Plastics got to stop. A lot of people are talking about it now, it's gaining traction and there is a ground swell. A lot more impetus now it's coming from companies rather than just individuals, global companies are now looking at it and once they have made the move we all will. It's so encouraging. From my first reading about plastic pollution I've become hooked.

You can read more about Lesley’s Row and track her progress here.

All at Sea-Changers wish Lesley lots of luck in her adventures and we look forward to hearing all about it on her return.

'Adventure Underwater' Supporting our Oceans

Sea-Changers supporters, Paul and Laura Manfield started diving in 2009 and it has been a life changing experience for them. Paul tells their dive story and how it has led them to want to given back to the oceans they love. 


'My wife Laura and I completed our Open Water course in the Maldives in December 2009 on a small atoll called Biyadhoo, during that week’s diving I fell in love with being under water. As we travelled back to the airport on a speed boat I suggested too Laura we should set up a business involving diving and underwater photography and videography, and spread our new found enthusiasm to as wide an audience, as we could. It was a dream I thought would probably never happen, and when we arrived home we went back to our normal lives.It took another four years before I literally took the plunge and booked to do all my courses and exams with a dive centre in Peurto Del Carmen.

Laura Manfield

I moved to Lanzarote in April 2013 to become a PADI dive instructor, I wanted to change my life big time and this idea came top of my list, to help me achieve that goal. Before that I was an advanced diver with only 30 dives under my belt, so I had plenty to learn.After three months of solid work I qualified and become an instructor and began my dream of having a life in diving.  After working for a dive centre in Costa Teguise for a year and gaining experience, I left to start my own business and Adventure Underwater came to life.

My passion in life is to introduce new people to the beautiful underwater world that I see every day. I start the process with a tour of the local aquarium here in Costa Teguise so my clients can see the fish up close and personal, and to educate them a little about the importance of looking after our oceans.After the tour we take them either snorkeling or diving which ever they prefer, and while they are in the water Laura videos them and then edits a short film about 5 minutes long that capture the experience for them. During the time we spend with our clients we discuss marine and conservation projects and try to get them engaged in some way. We take a wide cross section of ages ranging from 10 to 80 years old, in all shapes and sizes, and I love seeing their amazement at how beautiful being in the ocean can be.Our customer base has a 55 – 45% split in favour of the men, we have huge interest from the women which surprised me at the start as I believe the norm in diving would be 80 – 20 % split, men V women.

Paul Manfield
I am going to do my best to get more people involved in our oceans care. I want others to see and feel like I do about the importance the oceans play in our lives.As we develop our business I want to really work on getting more people involved with marine conservation projects in the UK, after they go home from their holiday here, I don’t just want them to forget their experience with us, I want it to be the start of something for them.'

Photographers Creating Sea-Change by Simon McPherson

The seas around the UK are home to an amazing variety of animals & plants, and every effort made to protect them is vitally important. Sea-Changers is a registered charity that aims to raise money for marine conservation in the UK by creating a community of businesses and individuals who will work together to raise money for projects that can make a genuine difference to the future of our seas.
They say a photograph speaks a thousand words, and I certainly agree with this statement; which is why I set up a collaborative project  working with some of the UK’s most talented wildlife photographers. The project has two aims:
·         To raise awareness about the diversity of UK marine wildlife from seabirds to fish, and
·         To give photographers the wider recognition they deserve for all their hard work.
Copyright Frogfish Photography
So why did I set it up? The main reason is I’ve always had an interest in marine wildlife photography, and I wanted to find a way to highlight the diversity of UK marine wildlife in a creative manner. I believe that the best way to inspire people to back your message is through photography, and I have aspirations to be a photographer myself.
One of the most interesting, and challenging, parts of the project was choosing the people we were going to approach. I very much enjoyed spending my time looking through websites and Facebook pages of many different photographers, from professionals to students. These clearly showed a strong interest in UK marine wildlife. Here are details of some of the people that we are currently working with as part of the project:

Chris Knight
Chris’s interest in photography began when he took an Art & Design course at college, and after graduating started working part time as a journalist & photographer for Wakeboard Magazine. After gaining his qualification as a PADI Divemaster and an Advanced Diploma in Marine Zoology, his journey in underwater photography began.  His specialist subject is sharks, having spent some times travelling to different diving locations and volunteering for organisations such as the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme. His photos have won competitions and been published in calendars and articles.




Mark Kirkland
Mark has always had an interest in the sea, having spent childhood holidays exploring the rugged West Coast of Scotland, exploring rock pools in beaches or clambering over cliffs. His fascination continued when he started diving at 25 and picked up a camera a few years later.  His specialist subject is photographing wildlife in the seas around Scotland, and he hopes to start using his passion for underwater photography to highlight the dangers facing the marine environment and illustrate exactly why it is worth saving. 



 Heather Buttivant
Heather has a fascination for exploring rock pools, which inspired her career as an environmentalist, educator and writer. As part of her passion for marine wildlife, she currently volunteers for the Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Looe Marine Conservation Group.Heather has set up a blog ‘Cornish Rock Pools’ in order to share how incredible UK marine wildlife is with people around the world using a basic waterproof compact camera. No matter how cold it is, how much her fingers hurt, or how quickly the tide is turning, that doesn’t stop her from plunging her camera back into the water until she captures that special moment in a special environment.

All of the photographers have very kindly donated some of their magical photos for us to use across the Sea-Changers website so that we can actively promote the diversity of UK marine wildlife, from dolphins to corals. We also wanted them to share their own experiences, which is why I actively asked each of them to write about their experiences with UK marine wildlife and how vital it is to protect our seas.
I am very proud  of the project so far: we currently have up to 40 people involved and a wide range of photographs of our amazing UK marine wildlife.
