Join us and help Brighton’s incredible marine wildlife!
Would you and your team like to do more to protect Brighton’s little piece of ocean? Many Brighton businesses and individuals feel a close connection to the sea – for many of us it’s a big part of why we live here! But few are aware of the diversity of wildlife under the waves or the threats to its existence.
The Brighton Dolphin Project aims to educate, inspire and engage the local community with the incredible marine life right off our coast – including dolphins! The project is also the first to study our dolphins – an essential first step towards protecting them and the places they live.
To achieve this we need your help – and we also want to help you! That’s why we would like to invite you to become a ‘Brighton Dolphin Supporter’. Join us and we will get you and your team out on the water, discovering marine wildlife and seeing Brighton as you have never seen it before. We’d also like to help you to become more ocean friendly as a business – at a pace that suits you. Here’s how it will work.
You can become a Brighton Dolphin Supporter and enjoy all of these amazing activities for just £2,000 per year:
CSR AND TEAM BUILDING
Boat trip! Up to 20 places on one of our expertly guided boat trips from Brighton Marina to the West Pier, to see and hear about the natural treasures just off our coast;
Beach clean! Do something practical about the local litter problem with our team building beach cleans;
Rockpooling! Take a fun morning or afternoon out of the office, getting up close and personal with life on our rocky shores.
Virtual dolphin watching! We take you dolphin watching without getting your feet wet with our fully guided 360 degree VR experience!
