Historic moment to save Scotland’s seas
The public consultation on a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) both around the coast and further offshore has now closed.
The busy task of analysing all the responses to last year’s Scottish MPA consultation is complete, revealing an astonishing 99% of respondents in favour of the proposed new Scottish MPAs. We expect to hear the announcement about which will be going forward for designation, by 25th July at the latest. Whatever happens, and we hope it will be at least the best 29 sites of the 33, we will keep you all posted of developments.
Until then, you can keep pledging your support for Scottish MPAs online:
