Becoming a Marine Champion or Marine Ambassador is a great way to support Secrets of the Solent in greater depth, while also gaining valuable knowledge and skills. We have a number of roles available, with something to suit all interests.

As a volunteer on the project, you'll join a community of dedicated people who share your love for the Solent. What's more, you'll play a vital role in protecting our amazing local marine wildlife for many years to come.

You don't need any special knowledge or experience to take on these roles, just enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. You'll receive full training and support from the project team, as well as informative resources to help you inspire others.

You can change role at any time, and even choose more than one. For example, you might share your wildlife knowledge as a Ferry Safaris Marine Champion and also raise aware of conservation issues as a Marine Ambassador at your workplace.

"I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get out and do what I love most: rockpooling and introducing children and young adults to the wonders of our local marine environment. I hope to instil in them the same passion that I have for the wealth of wildlife on our doorstep."
Erica, Marine Champion
