Deep Sea Conservation Coalition

Conservation / Environment / Climate

The Deep Sea Conservation Coalition (DSCC) is focused on two overarching goals: to substantially reduce the greatest threats to life in the deep sea; and to safeguard the long-term health, integrity and resilience of deep-sea ecosystems.

Since it came together in 2004, the DSCC has worked to raise awareness, prompt debate, and secure international agreements and regulations to protect deep-sea ecosystems and biodiversity. In so doing we have set important precedents for wider ocean conservation. From a strong base of knowledge, and a network and reputation in deep-sea advocacy and science, we mobilize and coordinate civil society advocacy efforts nationally, regionally and globally. The DSCC represents or collaborates with the vast majority of the world’s expertise on deep-sea biodiversity, conservation and policy.

To support our growing size and complexity, the DSCC is now recruiting a Director of Operations, to ensure that the organisation runs smoothly and effectively, and to help us evolve as we grow. Due to the structure of the DSCC and external funding opportunities, this is a term limited contract role, targeted for 1 October 2022 to 31 December 2023, with a possibility for extension.
