New Marine Conservation Magazine Goes on Sale in Scarborough

Helen Dodds with SEA Change

A brand new magazine goes on sale in Scarborough this week, packed full of news about marine conservation and welfare endeavours.

Christened 'Sea Change' the new magazine chronicles the rescue work and conservation campaigns of the Sea Life Centre network and its partner charity The Sea Life Trust.

On sale exclusively to Sea Life Centre visitors, the 12-page first issue covers triumphs ranging from the successful rescue of a rare Northern Pacific right whale by the Sea Life team in Busan to a mission to restore coral reefs in the Maldives.

Scarborough Sea Life Centre gets a special mention for its hand-rearing of a pair of orphaned Humboldt penguins.

Scarborough Sea Life boss Richard Dilly said:
"Our marine experts across the global Sea Life network do so much amazing work and so much of it goes unheralded. Sea Change highlights dozens of exciting projects stretching from Germany to Australia, and it's fantastic to be able to offer our visitors all this information in one attractive and highly readable package."
Scarborough Sea Life displays staff will be among the keenest of Sea Change's early readers.

Four of them are pictured in a feature about Sea Life's support for a new sea turtle rescue and information centre in Greece, which they flew out to help work on.

Displays supervisor Lyndsey Crawford said:
"Many of our visitors think we just take care of the fish in our displays, but there's so much more going on behind the scenes and off site. Readers of this new magazine will be astonished just how much Sea Life and The Sea Life Trust are doing across the world."
All proceeds from Sea Change will go into Sea Life Trust coffers to help fund future projects ranging from helping create new marine protected areas and protecting sea turtles and sharks, to dealing with the issue of marine litter.

So Sea Change readers will know they are helping a good cause as they learn about Sea Life's plans to create a world-first sanctuary for dolphins, about the mapping of the undulate ray's genome to aid a pioneering breeding programme, a mission to wipe out cyanide fishing and many more worthy endeavours to safeguard our seas and the life that lives in them.
