Act now to rescue protected areas for marine wildlife

The Government promised a network of Marine Conservation Zones to protect our precious marine wildlife.

Consultation ends: Easter Sunday – 31st March 2013

Sea user stakeholder groups came to an agreement and recommended a network of 127 zones in English and Welsh offshore waters.

The Government’s consultation is now proposing to designate just 31 of these in 2013, with no process or timetable set out for the remainder.

Crucially 31 sites will not make a network. We need the rest too!

Please respond to the consultation to call for a full network, starting with the 31 sites, by sending a response online at: wildlifetrusts.org/haveyoursay
