We have built a dedicated team of people from around the world, all with one thing in common, they love the Ocean

Our Chief Executive Officer

Roger Maslin

It’s my privilege to be the CEO of the Ocean Conservation Trust , to set the direction and steer the ship, but above all, to help everyone make as much of a positive difference as they can to our Ocean and enjoy themselves while doing so.

The Ocean conservation cause is very close to my heart.  The work we do on behaviour change and habitat restoration, combined with running UK’s largest Aquarium, which includes over 4,000 Ocean animals that don’t have a voice of their own – and, of course, the incredible team I have – all make it a pleasure to be a part of the Ocean Conservation Trust.

What I love about the Ocean is that it’s the foundation of life, yet we know so little about it and its infinite capacity to surprise, if we look after it.
