Our local seas are home to a secret world of eelgrass meadows, breadcrumb sponges, anemones and sea squirts.  Tiny stalked jelly fish, magical seahorses and charismatic seals all live off our coastlines and depend on a healthy marine environment to survive.

Through our new Heritage Lottery funded Secrets of the Solent project we will work with users of the Solent and local communities to help people discover the nature that lives beneath the waves. We want to inspire local people to become champions for our seas and show how easy it is to reduce our impact on fragile marine habitats.

Secrets of the Solent is a Heritage Lottery funded project that will run for four years. It is currently in the development year and we need to raise £65,000 in match funding to unlock the £640,300 needed for the four delivery years. This means that for every £1 donated we will receive a further £9.85 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Can you help us protect our local seas? You can donate below or fundraise for this project by using the tab and setting up your own fundraising page.
