The future of our seas

Our Living Seas programme is all about creating healthy seas that are rich in wildlife. Our work includes monitoring our small shark species through a tagging programme, attending dead marine megafauna strandings, encouraging puffins to nest on the Calf of Man, continuing to monitor seal pup births around the Calf and monitoring non-native invasive species to enable a better understanding of our wildlife.

With over 87% of our Manx territory being marine, there is plenty of work.

As an Island nation Living Seas have an important role in all our lives, whether it be our livelihood, our playground or our wellbeing
