Could you be our next Marine Champion?

Our exciting new project, Secrets of the Solent, needs passionate and dedicated people to help bring a vibrant hidden world to life on land.

Over four years, Secrets of the Solent will celebrate the Solent as a special environment that is home to both amazing wildlife and fascinating people. There are lots of different ways to get involved, from sharing your local wildlife sightings to visiting public artworks.

A great way to support the project in more depth, while also gaining new skills and wildlife knowledge, is to volunteer with us as a Marine Champion or Marine Ambassador. With many different roles to choose from there’s a place for all talents, and you can change role at any time to try something new.

You’ll receive full training and plenty of support from the project team. You’ll also join our welcoming Marine Champions community, giving you the chance to meet others who share your love for the Solent.

We're currently seeking people for the following roles:

As the project moves forward there will be other exciting roles available, including helping to celebrate local sustainable seafood. In the meantime, please contact Emily on secretsofthesolent@hiwwt.org.uk to chat about how you can volunteer.
