The charity raises funds from divers and other water-users for UK-based marine conservation charities and projects, and says it is distributing almost £10,500 to 18 causes.

The funds are raised through partners such as Mike’s Dive Stores, Boat Sharefinder and Hebridean Island Cruises.

Sea-Changers says it has awarded 115 marine conservation grants across the UK over the past six years.

Examples of the latest dispersal include Basking Shark Scotland’s series of clean-ups in the remote islands of Argyll; Cornwall Marine Microplastics Researchers conducting sea-surface trawls for microplastics along the north Cornish coast; Plastic Clever Salcombe's Kids Against Plastic campaign; Environment Plymouth running local workshops on the dangers of plastic pollution and alternatives available for local traders; and a citizen-science project called Trawlshare run by the 5Gyres.

Sea-Changers wants to hear from marine-conservation projects looking for future grants - the deadline for the next round is 30 September.
