Your Help is Needed Now to Raise Awareness of Marine Wildlife Around our Coast and the Space it Needs to Thrive.

Protectors of the Sea is a project-led non-profit organisation set up to help protect and preserve wildlife and habitat around the Cornish coastline and to educate a new generation. Recent research conducted by the University of Aberdeen found that there has been a 70% decline in global seabird populations since the middle of the 20th century. 


The Wildlife Awareness Project

Objective: The aim of this project is to protect wildlife around the Cornish Coastline and raise awareness about how to preserve their habitat. We aim to Protect and Preserve the wildlife around the Coastline by providing information to the public and spread awareness of our rich environment at beaches and bays as well as conduct research on colonies of seabirds to monitor their numbers.

We also plan to raise awareness to users of the coastline about the proper etiquette around the wildlife and the useful information available from Cornwall Marine and Coastal Code Group.

Wildlife: The Cornish Coastline is home to a huge array of wildlife. Coastline users getting too close to wildlife hotspots can spark mass flushes of nesting seabirds from their cliff ledge nests, causing eggs to be knocked off and leaving chicks open to predation. Grey seals can be spooked during vital resting periods causing problems for pregnant females who then flee to get back to the water. 

We thank you for taking the time to support this appeal to raise awareness to respect the space of our local seabirds.
