At Brighton Silver we take pride in supporting environmental and educational charities throughout the world. This year we will start with an initiative much closer to home, as it's located right here in Sussex. As of October 2023, we will begin to donate 1% of our revenue towards the Sussex Kelp Recovery Project (SKRP). Our coastline was once abundant with kelp forests and diverse ecosystems. Yet, by the mid-1980s, large-scale trawling saw this be reduced to only 4% of their previous scale. The SKRP has worked tirelessly to protect these areas and in 2021 new legislation was passed, creating 304 km2 of Trawler Exclusion Zones to protect the seabed in Sussex. This, combined with citizen science, and partnerships with various organisations and the local community, has been vital in ecosystem recovery.
We would highly recommend watching the new BBC documentary called ‘Our Sea Forest’ which follows the progress of kelp and ecosystem recovery along the Sussex Coast in cooperation with local free diver Eric Smith, who witnessed first-hand the decline of our previously diverse ecosystems.To get involved or gain more information about the Sussex Kelp Recovery Project, visit their website at Sussex Kelp Recovery Project.
