Our Friends

The Living Seas Project

The Scottish Wildlife Trust‘s Living Seas Project has been a great friend to USS right from the start. The snorkel trail, set up by Living Seas, taught them how to explore the underwater world for themselves. People protect what they love, and a big part of the kids’ love for the sea is thanks to the work of this group.

Project Seagrass

Gail Ross MSP

Deli-ca-sea have put up a noticeboard especially for USS to put up things for people to read while they wait for their food to be ready! They are also running the Chips for Litter scheme in partnership with USS and Living Seas.

Our local Harbour Trust have been incredibly supportive of the work we do and we are really 

grateful to them for the ongoing use of the piers, as well as their offer of financial support, just exactly when we needed it the most.


Maree Todd MSP

Maree Todd MSP has been really supportive of the Sea Savers since the very beginning. She has engaged, inspired and really taken the time to get to know the kids. Here she is in her role as flame shell ambassador, meeting with USS’s own flame shell ambassador: Caillin.

The Levellers!

We love the Levellers! SO excited to have received these tour t-shirts from them. The design incorporates a wee shark added to express their support of USS’s work to save the seas!

Levellers support has really meant the world to USS, and we were delighted to be able to send them hoodies as a wee token of our esteem…

Doug Allen

Doug Allen gave talk here in Ullapool  in October 2018. He was a huge hit with everyone, and really, really inspired the kids, spending ages chatting to them, encouraging them and generally being a total inspiration. He even gave them an inscribed copy of his fantastic new book: Freeze Frame! We’re really hoping he’ll come back and snorkel with us in 2019.

Julia Barton

Julia Barton at the Littoral sci:art project is a constant source of support and learning to young and old in our community and is an enormous inspiration to the USS kids. We can’t wait to get involved in more of her fascinating projects!

Ullapool’s Seaforth Bar and Restaurant

Ullapool’s Seaforth Bar and Restaurant have been a great friend to the Sea Savers from the start. When the kids wanted a way to say a thank-you to all the adults that have helped them over the year, The Seaforth donated a pack of vouchers. They are also hosting a fabulous fundraiser event for us 8th June 2019!

Chris Packham’s People’s Walk for Wildlife

We made loads of friends (and took the opportunity to tell them about our kelp campaign too) at this amazing event in September 2018!

Ullapool Primary and High Schools

We are enormously grateful to have such a supportive community around us and right at the heart of that community are our schools with some of the most supportive and inspiring staff anyone could wish for!

The Ullapool News

Our weekly local newspaper does brilliant work keeping everyone informed about all the things that happen locally – and that includes all the things we get up to! We are really grateful to them for all that they do. See our media section for some of the articles they’ve run about USS.

We’re hugely grateful for all the support we’ve received from IOSF in all things otter-related! Their wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm have been both an inspiration and an invaluable resource.

For support in writing the flame shell fact file, we thank Ben James from SNH .

The Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust have been hugely supportive of all our ambassadors writing cetacean fact files – we really appreciate all their help!

Scottish environment link have supported the kids linking up with MSP species champions – an exciting connection that has done a hug amount to encourage the kids in being ambassadors for their species.

Ailsa MacLennan of 58o North Seaweeds is a woman with seaweed knowledge! We are very, very lucky to have her support learning about all things seaweed and why it is so important to save the kelp.
