About the Reef Trust

Who we are

Reef Trust founded in 2020 by Michael Byrne with the support of trustees, volunteers and enthusiastic staff, is a charitable organization committed to restoring and protecting coastal waters around the UK and coordinating conservation efforts worldwide. We believe that the key to securing a sustainable future lies within our relationship to the ocean.

What we do

We’re taking action to reconnect our nation to the sea. We all depend upon the functioning of our ocean to eat, breathe and survive. By discovering ways to conserve key habitats and wildlife, we help towards a future where our oceans flourish for the benefit of our planet and own economic, social and cultural needs. Reef Trust is taking a stand for our oceans and we need support from individuals and companies like you.
