COAST relies on gifts like yours to make a real difference in marine conservation in Scotland through our campaigns and educational and research work. For example, a small donation can help us cover the costs of printing resources for our outreach activities (£10), larger donations can help us: visit mainland schools far from the sea (£100), generate our newsletter every two months (£500), or hire a local fishing boat for research to monitor the impact of marine protected areas (£1,000). Larger donations can also help us deliver our annual programme of events at the Octopus Centre and continue our campaigns to protect Scottish seas.
