MMO working group

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

The Seahorse Trust has been invited to join a group set up by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to work with a group of people and organisations looking at the best way to protect seahorses in the wild here in the UK. Unfortunately most of the areas that seahorses are found in are also the ones most used by mankind; so it puts untold pressure on them.
The work the trust has been doing at Studland and our success in getting both species protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) has helped to persuade the MMO that there is a need to have this important working group to address the problems facing Seahorses in the wild.

Amys Lands end to John O’Groats cycle ride

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments


I am raising money for The Seahorse Trust who champion the protection of Seahorses within the UK.

On 20th August 2011 I set off from John o’Groats with an old university friend. Together over the next 11 1/2 days we traversed the country covering 1000.9 miles to achieve our goal! At 5pm on 31st August we reached our destination – Lands End.

It was hard, there were lots of hills, I wasn’t a particularly experienced cyclist and quite frankly felt a bit mad cycling down the country.

The Seahorse Trust is a small charity that works exceptionally hard with the small amount of resources they have to raise awareness of Seahorses.

If hearing about my journey has inspired you or if you know me and are just surprised I made (in one piece!) then please feel free to make a donation towards this worthy cause.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations and you can donate via Virgin Giving at the following link.

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

Seahorse Trust trustee Charlotte and a few friends will be cycling coast to coast from Ilfracombe to Plymouth on the weekend of the 29th/30th October; a 105 mile cycle overall to raise funds for The Seahorse Trust and you can support her through Virgin Giving, the more she gets the more the trust can do.

Visit the link below to find out how you can sponosr Charlotte to do this gruelling cycle ride and don’t forget to Gift Aid it. If your a UK tax payer we can claim 25p for every pound you donate which is a huge boost to us.

The Seahorse Trust is a charitable organisation which carries out research and marine conservation into Seahorses and the environment worldwide.

It would be fantatic if you could sponsor Charlotte and her group to do this event to raise as much money as they can for the Trust so it can continue its work with seahorses both around the UK and worldwide.

Remember if you want to do an event to raise funds for the trust to do its work then sign up to Virgin Giving, its the easiest and safest way to get sponsors for an event.
