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.
Due to Covid-19, volunteering on the project looks a little different right now. Some activities are being paused or run in a new way, but we're as busy as ever and still seeking people to join our welcoming volunteer community. Please contact us with any concerns - we'd be happy to help.

Meet our Marine Champions
Young Marine Champions
Our region is filled with passionate young people who want to make a difference for the marine environment. To give these under-18s a way to join the fight for our seas, we're supporting students at several local secondary schools to become Young Marine Champions. These student volunteers organise marine-themed activities in their schools, ranging from organising beach cleans to reducing single-use plastics.
