British comedian and actor John Bishop and his wife Melanie have been named the first ever patrons of Merlin Entertainments’ Sea Life Trust.

The trust, which works globally to protect the world’s oceans, made the headlines last year following the move of two captive beluga whales into a first of its kind wild sanctuary - a story which was documented by John Bishop for ITV in the UK.

Over the last two years and through the documentary, both John and Melanie have become an important part of the Sea Life Trust by helping to raise awareness of the organisation’s charitable work. Because of this and their commitment to become even more involved, they have been named the charity’s first ever patrons.

“What we want to do is have a long-term relationship with the Sea Life Trust,” said the couple in an Instagram video. “Visiting the belugas out in Iceland was very moving and we’re really looking forward to watching their progress but also getting involved in a lot of the projects the Sea Life Trust has around the UK, including looking after the beaches and working to make our oceans and marine life more sustainable and more healthy.”

A statement from the Sea Life Trust added: “John and Melanie are committed to helping us to reach a wider audience and really getting “hands on” with our sanctuaries and a range of projects which will continue to help protect marine life across the world. Their support will help us achieve even more over the coming years and we can’t thank them enough.”
