At the Ocean Conservation Trust, people are at the heart of our mission. That’s why we want to bring together a group of individuals who are passionate about the Ocean to become our Ocean Advocates.
Our Ocean Advocates use their online voices, through social media and beyond, to help people to Think Ocean, and to realise that making some small changes in their daily lives can have a huge positive impact.
Take a look at some of our current Ocean Advocates.
The Ocean is important to me because it’s amazing! It holds so much life and has a huge impact on how we live. Also, I love penguins!
The reason why the Ocean means so much to us is because it’s a place to calm ourselves and a place for adventure. We are always in awe of the Ocean and the power it has. We will always be humbled by our experiences with it and will always try our best to protect it.
The Ocean has given us life and makes us feel alive, now is about time we return the favour
The Ocean is vast, beautiful and invaluable – a combination I find incomparably fascinating and worthy.
Ocean, give me power, energy and peace! I just love being in the ocean – I feel alive! We need to take care of our beautiful planetO
“The Ocean is incredibly important to me, as it’s the lifeblood of our planet — producing over half the Earth’s oxygen and regulating the climate; it’s vital that we protect it.”
I recently had the pleasure of visiting The Wave, just outside Bristol. Just at the sound of the waves crashing, I could feel my body relax and settle in to a new mode of being that is so completely blissful. That’s just one way even a simulation of the Ocean can sync with you. It’s where we came from and we still draw life and love from its systems.
How does this help the Ocean?
Social media has become a part of our world and a vital tool for conservation too. Working with inspirational Ocean Advocates, we aim to speak to as many different people in as many different places as possible.
We connect people with the Ocean so that they connect with it, learn to love it and want to protect it.
