The Sea Ranger Service is on a mission to create combined social and environmental impact to strengthen coastal regions and improve the protection of the world’s oceans. The focus lies on the regeneration of fragile ocean biodiversity in some of the world’s marine hotspots, whilst simultaneously training and coaching of young unemployed people from vulnerable coastal communities as Sea Rangers towards a maritime career.

Our vision is to regenerate the world’s oceans to a healthy and abundant eco-system to drive forward human potential and prosperity.

Diversity statement


To achieve our ambitious oceans mission, we work to make the Sea Ranger Service a welcoming and inclusive organisation. We celebrate diversity and assist in the personal growth of anyone within our ranks. We empower our Sea Rangers and wider team to live unique experiences and foster a sense of collective achievement in our everyday work. 

At sea we run a tight ship. Being a disciplined crew keeps us safe when operating in challenging conditions. Equally we are committed to create an open and accessible work environment in which learning takes center stage. 

Anyone deserves the opportunity to develop and build themselves a healthy and independent life. By working together, beyond the divides of race, gender, age, religion and identity, we can play a frontline role in ocean protection and regeneration. Thanks to your involvement we can collectively make a positive impact for others around us and towards a better future for all. 

The ocean breathes life into our planet. The passion, skills and effort you bring as your authentic self can help keep this blue heart beating for generations to come.
