The SEA LIFE Trust

Merlin has an excellent record and reputation for supporting conservation initiatives around the world. To reinforce this and to protect more habitat and wildlife across the world, we are proud to support our partner charity the SEA LIFE Trust.

The SEA LIFE Trust’s vision is of a world where our oceans are healthy, properly protected and full of life.

The Trust aims to achieve that vision by developing and supporting projects and campaigns that make a measurable difference to the protection of marine wildlife and habitats.

Since 2014 when it first became active, the SEA LIFE Trust has:

  • Campaigned against whaling in the EU
  • Funded and run educational campaigns encouraging people to reduce the amount of plastic entering our seas
  • Organised beach and litter cleans across the world
  • Donated over £140,000 to fund projects that help to protect marine wildlife and habitat across the world

In 2016 the Trust will run campaigns that play a key role in the creation of more marine protected areas (MPAs) across the world and, alongside that will be providing funding for practical projects that help to protect wildlife and habitat close to Sea Life Centres.

The reach of SEA LIFE means that the Trust can communicate its global messages and campaigns to over 20 million people, giving it a very strong position to achieve its goals and make change.
