Help us ensure Government creates and protects a network of Marine Protected Areas around the UK
The UK’s iconic seas and coast are home to some of the most colourful, fascinating and beautiful marine life in the world, supporting everything from valuable fish stocks, to delicate jewel anemones, Basking sharks and Angel sharks. The wealth of our seas lies in their diversity. An ecologically coherent network of Marine Protected Areas is needed to ensure a proportion of our seas is protected and recovers.
