Sea-Changers channels £9000

Among the beneficiaries of this latest tranche of cash are Cetacean Research & Rescue Unit (CRRU), which receives £1000 to support a minke-whale research programme in north-east Scotland; and Sharkstuff, which gets £570 for its Baited Remote Underwater Video (BRUV) surveys of sharks, rays and skates in Dorset.

Northern Ireland Environment Support Team benefits from £490 to fund a series of litter-picks along Northern Ireland’s north coast in places accessible only by boat, while the Mull Otter Group will put its £350 towards buying beach-cleaning equipment.

“We’ve raised a very useful amount of money for this round of awards,” said Sea-Changers co-founder Helen Webb.

“This means we can award up to £1000 for some projects, which might not sound a lot, but it can make a lot of difference to projects around the UK’s shores.”

Cash is raised through Sea-Changers partners such as Mike’s Dive Store, Boat Sharefinder and Hebridean Island Cruises.
