Marine conservation, Ocean cleanup, Conservation of marine and coastal diversity

The Marine Conservation Society, based in the UK, organises multifaceted marine conservation projects, including Beachwatch and the Great British Beach Clean weekend annually in September. Plastic pollution is one of several focuses. Their Seasearch project involves volunteers collecting information about marine habitats, plants and animals underwater, thus engaging divers and snorkellers in marine-life monitoring research. The MCS is an active advocate, promoting marine protected areas as a policy with the aim of 30% of UK waters having protected status by 2030.
