Helen Webb, Co-Founder of Sea-Changers said: "We love the idea of a specific Innovation Fund, to run alongside our main grants programme. Whilst the grants we give out have, in the past, funded innovative solutions; the idea of this new fund is positively to encourage new thinking and fresh ideas to help tackle marine conservations challenges around the UK."
