Caring For The Planet We Love

The world is beautiful…and we support (and are grateful to) the wonderful people who work tirelessly to protect it. Organisations and causes dedicated to restoring, saving and supporting ecosystems are vital to the preservation of habitats and the creatures and communities within them. As a diver and explorer you can get involved and make a difference at home and when you travel.

The aim of this page will be to feature organisations that are working to preserve our planet. There will be click throughs to each of their websites, so that you can find out more and to see how you can help support them.

Please keep checking this page for further additions…

Just A Drop

Just a Drop brings sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities; transforming lives.

785 million people globally don’t have access to safe water. Drinking dirty water makes people ill but that’s just part of the picture – A lack of safe water and sanitation holds back development and makes it harder for communities to escape the poverty trap.

We run safe water projects across Asia, Africa and Latin America that are community-owned, sustainable, and monitored for years after completion. This ensures they make a real, transformative impact to the lives of communities for decades to come. So far we have reached over 1.5 million people with safe water and sanitation.

Find out how you can support communities across the world by giving them access to clean, safe water by visiting our website:

Coral Cay Conservation

We are a UK-based NGO, that focus on the protection, management and restoration of coral reefs and their associated systems. We have been based in the Philippines for nearly 20-years and at our current site in Napantao since 2008. Research teams composed of international volunteer divers, CCC staff and local Filipino scholars undertake Marine Protected Area assessment dives, collecting data on the ecological status of the village’s reef system. The data collected is then analysed, and our staff work with the local people to reach a decision on how best to manage and conserve their reef systems.

You do not need to have a science background to volunteer with us as we take all those who join us through an in-depth and informative training programme. By joining us on our Philippines site you will be able to improve your diving skills in one of the most bio-diverse locations in the world, and become adept at identifying corals, fish and a host of other marine creatures. Grab the opportunity to play an active role in tackling the global biodiversity crisis!

Sea Shepherd is an international direct-action ocean conservation movement.

Our Mission
To defend, conserve and protect our oceans.
Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that engages in direct action campaigns to defend wildlife, and conserve and protect the world’s oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.

Why We Fight
Threats to the health of our ocean ecosystems
Our oceans and its inhabitants are dying from overfishing and habitat destruction. Poachers plunder marine life sanctuaries with impunity, and illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing goes unchecked in the high seas far from public scrutiny.

Our Approach
Direct action to enforce laws protecting our oceans
International and national laws protecting the world’s oceans are difficult to enforce. Sea Shepherd uses direct action to defend marine life on the high seas, and works with national authorities to tackle illegal fishing in sovereign waters.

The History of Sea Shepherd
Sea Shepherd was founded in 1977 by Paul Watson, one of the original members of Greenpeace. Since its grassroots beginnings it has grown into an unstoppable global movement with independent groups established in over 20 countries.

Our Fleet
The Sea Shepherd Global Fleet
Sea Shepherd Global’s fleet – currently consisting of four vessels – plays a crucial role in our mission to defend, conserve and protect marine life in direct-action campaigns around the world, from Antarctica to Africa.

Artists for Sea Shepherd
International Artists Support Sea Shepherd
Artists, musicians, and actors from around the world use their talent to support Sea Shepherd’s mission and share their concern about the future of our oceans.
