Research Partnerships: Marine Conservation Society

Marine Conservation Society :: Wild Days Conservation :: The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is a UK charity that cares for our seas, shores and wildlife. MCS is the voice for everyone who loves the sea, working to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened marine wildlife before it is lost forever.

LevelMCS :: Wild Days Conservation :: www.wilddaysconservation.orgs of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sealife, including seabirds, whales and dolphins.

71% of Europe's fish stocks are overfished or depleted. Once common fish such as skate and cod are now rare in many areas. MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives.

The Marine Conservation Society's work ensures that the sea's rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner.

Wild Days Conservation work in partnership with MCS to survey and monitor beaches, and as part of its Beachwatch programme have 'adopted' a number of beaches throughout the UK.
