Support our marine conservation and education charitable work

How you can support our charity

There are lots of ways to support our charity. Income raised from our café, gift shop (in the Centre and online), a visit to the exhbits in our Discovery Experience or taking a wildlife boat trip, all help to support our charitable activities. We also need to rely on additional fundraising to support our important conservation activities, science communications and marine learning programmes. Each year we need to raise around £600,000 to support our work from our direct fundraising activity.
