MARINE CONSERVATION SOCIETY

Our seas are under threat – from pollution, overfishing and a lack of protection. We are taking too much out, for example fish and oil – often using intensive or destructive techniques. We are putting too much in – waste, pollution and damaging development. The Marine Conservation Society is the UK’s leading marine charity. We work to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution free and protected.

Stop taking too much out of our seas: MCS will work to ensure sustainable use of the seas by minimising harm when we harvest resources, for example through fishing and oil extraction.

Stop putting too much into our seas: MCS will work to prevent and clean up marine litter and pollution, and to minimise damage from development and climate change.
