COAST is an inspirational and world renowned community-led organisation working for the protection and restoration of a diverse, abundant and beautiful marine environment. It started in 1995 when two local scuba divers, Howard Wood and Don MacNeish, set up COAST after witnessing the destruction of Arran’s marine habitats and dramatic decline of fish stocks due to decades of unsustainable fishing.
