Blue Seas

A specialist marine conservation charity

'Fighting for the oceans - never out of our depth!'

Blue Seas Protection is a marine conservation charity based in Sandown on the Isle of Wight.

We focus primarily on education. We aim to spread awareness of the situations our oceans are facing, working with schools, community groups and businesses.

Overfishing is one of the biggest issues facing our seas. We fight to ban the use of 'supertrawlers'. We work with small, local fisheries supporting IPLNF (The International Pole and Line Foundation).

We support the Seaspiracy petition to protect 30% of the world's oceans from fishing by 2030.

Blue Seas Protection aims to reduce the waste reaching our waterways, beaches and oceans. Fighting to reduce plastic waste, sewage pollution and increase awareness of discarded fishing nets. Locally, we organise well-attended monthly beach cleans.

Unfortunately, endangered marine species need protection. We combat issues with 'bycatch', entanglement in fishing gear and animal cruelty or beaching. Our BSP Marine Mammal Medics are on hand to support any local incidents.

Blue Seas Protection is a fast growing UK registered charity - 1189529 - and is recognised by the United Nations (ID 28379) and U.N.E.S.C.O.

Blue Seas Protection, supported by Dame Joanna Lumley OBE and Brian May CBE

We are very fortunate to have not one, but two fantastic patrons:

Joanna Lumley

Fighting for our oceans - the one and only Dame Joanna Lumley OBE.

Joanna - a household name due to her stellar acting career - is also a tireless environmental and humanitarian campaigner. She has recently been a key campaigner for the 'Stop Sea Blasts' campaign, urging wind farm developers to stop blowing up unexploded WWII bombs in the seas around Britain as it deafens whales and dolphins, and causes huge damage to other marine life.

Brian May

Alongside Joanna is our longstanding friend and patron, Professor Brian May CBE.

Brian says:

"One day man will answer in a cosmic court for his crimes on our planet Earth".

Brian is a legend and powerful, passionate animal protector and also the lead guitarist of the legendary rock band Queen.


It is time to find out more and get involved with Blue Seas Protection and our mission to save our oceans.
