The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. They work to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened marine wildlife before it is lost forever. Their work is focused on three core areas: protecting wildlife, the promotion of sustainable seafood and campaigning for the reduction of pollution in our seas. MCS also runs a number of educational programs designed to enthuse and ignite a passion for the sea in children.

 

Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect marine wildlife and fish stocks.

 

Our UK seas and coasts are amongst the most diverse and beautiful on the planet, playing host to dolphins, sharks, whales and turtles.  Over half of the UK’s wildlife resides within our seas and many other species such as seabirds rely on them for their survival.

 

Something we are passionate about

The negative impact that humans are having on the marine environment is frightful and increasing rapidly. The volume of pollution, notably plastic, in the ocean has reached a level that it will unlikely fully recover from. This is a subject that we at Cityscape Recruitment were naïve to and one that has been brought to our attention in recent years. It has become something we are extremely passionate about.

 

By supporting the Marine Conservation Society, in particular, their work in reducing pollution, we are hopeful that not only can we provide donations and hands-on support for the charity but most importantly help raise awareness to others. The volume of pollution is an issue that needs to be brought to the attention of more people to have any chance of reducing the rate of progress and to lessen the amount of plastics ending up in our oceans. Problems of this scale cannot be fixed by a small minority. It will take a concerted effort from the majority for the sea’s rich wildlife to be restored and the oceans to become cleaner.
