Join our pod to support our work

If you like what we do then joining us as a member is the best way to support our work.

Membership enables you to become actively involved in the research and awareness efforts of our small charity. We pride ourselves on membership engagement, offering regular sightings updates, members meet-ups, events, volunteering opportunities and discounts on merchandise. Membership is ideal for local enthusiasts, those who want to connect better with nature and also for visitors to the island to keep connected.

The small annual subscription supports our ongoing work to monitor and protect Manx marine life through research and public awareness.  

A 50% discount is offered to new members joining half-way through the year and renewals are due in September each year.
