About Us


Our Seawilding core team, pictured above, combines a host of essential ingredients - marine biology, coastal surveying, project management, fundraising, photography, film-making and environmental sciences. Most importantly we owe our success to our community volunteers who contribute so much to our native oyster and seagrass restoration efforts. 

Seawilding's charitable aims are:

  • To advance the environmental protection and improvement of Scottish coastal waters by developing and delivering projects to restore degraded marine habitats and species, including native oysters, seagrass and other priority marine features around coastal shorelines

  • To advance the education of marine science, marine conservation and best-practice marine habitat restoration by creating citizen science and research opportunities with schools, community groups, organisations and academic partners

  • To advance the environmental protection and improvement of Scottish coastal waters by campaigning for sustainable and responsible use of marine resources















Our youth group Seawildlings is open to all primary aged school children who live on the Craignish Peninsula. Seawildlings aims to give children an opportunity to enjoy healthy time outdoors while learning about, and celebrating, our wonderful marine and coastal environment. The children help protect our Loch and coastline, while learning new skills, building aspirations and gaining self-confidence. We hope to inspire a passion for the sea and marine conservation from an early age, and perhaps we will be creating the marine biologists and environmentalists of the future! Seawildlings is led by Bea and supported by Jesse and Rachel. They work with a wonderfully diverse group of workshop leaders - marine biologists, artists, foragers, willow weavers, clay workers and musicians, just to name a few!

Our Network

Community-led marine habit restoration powering ahead!

Seawilding is actively rolling-out our best-practise, low-cost marine habitat restoration methodologies to other community groups across Scotland. We are proud to be working with these communities, empowering them to manage their own inshore marine environments sustainably, while addressing biodiversity-loss, sequestering carbon and creating Green Jobs.
