For over 10 years, the Algalita Marine Research Foundation has studied plastic marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean. What we have found – exponential increases in the quantity of plastic debris – have a range of ecological impacts we are only beginning to understand.
To put a cap on it, we’re sounding the alarm, by sailing across the Pacific on 15,000 plastic bottles. Along the way, we’ll report our findings, collect ocean surface samples, and answer your questions through our blog.
Out of sight, out of mind no longer, We need for people to begin paying attention, before our oceans turn to plastic soup.
The service is vital to Wales with its widely scattered population, many in remote and isolated communities far from an A & E hospital.With a 2.9 million population plus high influx of tourists in the summer, the need is created for at least 2 helicopters 7 days a week.

Since its foundation in 2000, the charity has expanded to provide a 365 day a year service covering Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. In August 2007, we took on Bedfordshire. Unbelievably, this means we cover an area approximately 11% of the total area of England.
With the assistance of the NHS Ambulance Trust and the Magpas Emergency medical team, our second Air Ambulance is now covering Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. MAGPAS is a charity based in Cambridge, supplying highly trained volunteer doctors to assist the NHS Trust paramedics fly on the second Air Ambulance five days a week. The East Anglian Air Ambulance is currently paying for the NHS Trust paramedics on the second helicopter.
We fly an average of 4 missions per day. It’s our job to get patients to hospital within the “Golden Hour”, and in an air ambulance that journey will take only minutes, greatly increasing patients’ chances of making a full recovery.
Here in East Anglia we need an air ambulance more than ever. Our roads are getting increasingly congested, leading to ever more road traffic accidents – which already make up more than 50% of our work. We are considered the most rural area in England with accidents occurring in remote locations not easily accessible by land ambulances.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance and MAGPAS are both charities, relying on donations from the public to continue services.
Our three helicopters serve an area of 8,000 sq miles and a population of over 7.8million.
Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Rutland, Warwickshire, the West Midlands and the Welsh borders.
From their bases at RAF Cosford (near Wolverhampton), Strensham North Services on the M5, and The East Midlands Airport at Castle Donnington (near the M1) the helicopters are available for up to 10 hours a day, seven days a week.

Virgin Islands Search and Rescue (VISAR) is a voluntary organisation dedicated to saving life at sea. It is the officially recognised search and rescue service in the British Virgin Islands, where it provides 24-hour cover every day of the year in close co-operation with the Royal British Virgin Islands police, fire and ambulance services.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and undergo rigorous training in seamanship and small boat-handling skills, search and rescue techniques and first aid. They give up their own time to train and answer distress calls with nothing in return except the satisfaction of knowing that they are doing a vital job.
VISAR’s help can be summoned in the BVI in several ways:
– Dialling 767 (SOS)
– Dialling 999 or 911
– Dialling 494 4357 (494-HELP)
– A distress call on VHF Channel 16

Saving lives at sea
The RNLI is the charity that provides a 24-hour lifesaving service around the UK and Republic of Ireland.
· The new MOB Guardian system, which has been developed by the RNLI for fishermen, gives an early alert to an emergency, helps reduce search time and provides the rescuers with an up to date position for the vessel. It means search and rescue agencies including RNLI volunteers don’t have to start a search with little or no information about the location of the casualty. If a single-handed fisherman falls over the side of their vessel the system will automatically alert Search and Rescue agencies and can also shut down the boats engine remotely. The fisherman wears a fob incorporating a panic button, so should a crewman become ill or caught in machinery, he can easily request help. It is confidential so location information about a particular vessel is not available publicly. For more information visit www.mobguardian.com
· Grant funding for the system is as follows at present:
Current guaranteed funding availability:
RNLI : 35% of installed price ongoing
MFA England: 40% of installed price orders placed up to 30-09-0
SEERAD Scotland: 40% of installed price orders placed up to 30-06-08
DARD N. Ireland: 40% of installed price orders placed up to 31-12- 08
Sunderland Marine: 25% of installed price to policy holders on application
Scottish Boat Owners: 25% of installed price to policy holders on application *All financial help is off the capital cost of a MOB Guardian unit excluding vat
Funding may be available within Jersey, Guernsey and The Isle of Man – fishermen should contact their local associations or call MOB Guardian help desk on 01202 663142
Fishermen may be eligible for several grants
· The RNLI runs a free and confidential service called SEA Check, which involves an RNLI volunteer visiting a boat to provide useful guidance and advice about all safety matters. To find out more visit www.rnli.org.uk/seasafety
· As a registered charity, the RNLI relies on voluntary contributions and legacies to ensure its volunteer crews have the very best lifeboats, equipment and training to help them save lives at sea.
