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