Ocean Ambassadors

Our Ocean Ambassadors come from all walks of life, but they all have one thing in common. They are passionate about the ocean and protecting it for future generations. Our Ocean Ambassadors have a diverse range of backgrounds – some are TV presenters, others have climbed the highest mountains in the world, we even have an Olympic Athlete amongst them. They are all committed to making a difference by promoting the work we do and raising awareness of the issues affecting the ocean whenever they can. We would like to say thank you to all of them for their support
