Every year, 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans. 54% of species on the threatened list have been found to have either ingested or become entangled in plastic. Half of the Great Barrier Reef is dead as a result of climate change. Ice caps are melting, polar species are running out of places to rest and hunt. Our seas are being fished dry, with one-third of the world's assessed fisheries being pushed beyond biological limits. 

Something has to be done. 

Here in the Marine Conservation Society, protecting our oceans is at the heart of all we do. Whether it's hosting guest speakers from the field, having marine documentary nights, taking part in beach cleans, advocating for plastic reduction on campus and in the community, being part of citizen science projects and even volunteering with marine life: you'll play an active part in conservation efforts in the fight to save our seas. 

You don't need to be a marine biologist or have worked with marine life before, all you need to be is passionate.

Our oceans need our help now more than ever, come be a part of it.
