With miles of stunning coastline, a shallow strait, and easy access to the seas beyond, our two counties share a wonderful marine environment. As well as being vital to our health and wellbeing, our waters bring fun, employment, and inspiration to thousands of people each day, and are central to our region's identity.

Unfortunately our marine wildlife is struggling to cope with increasing pressure from human activity. Our coastal habitats are being damaged and many amazing species are in danger of disappearing altogether. Nature is at a tipping point, and if we want to stop further decline then we must act now.

The Wildlife Trusts are on a mission to make our world wilder, and Wilder Solent is exploring what this looks like for our region's waters. We're still working hard to protect the marine environment, from monitoring vulnerable species to campaigning for legal protections, but we need your help to tip the balance in nature's favour.

Our work

We're working with partners both locally and nationally to protect the marine environment.

Get involved

There are lots of ways to support the marine environment both with us and independently.
