Help protect 40% of English seas
The Marine Conservation Society is asking people to sign a petition regarding the protection of 41 sites in English seas.
The idea is that the government wants to find out the public’s opinion as to whether 41 sites should be protected as Marine Conservation Zones.
These zones are vital to ocean health and marine species which all too often suffer from human activity.
Humpback whales, angelsharks, seahorses, puffins and dolphins are just some of the animals living in the proposed new zone areas – they would benefit from such zone creation.
If the government does take action and create the new zones, it would mean that 40% of Enlgish seas could be protected!
It’s the third and final round of 3 consultations to create Marine Conservation Zones in English waters.
In round two, public support helpeld the Marine Conservation Society submit half of all responses secured by the government – this secured protection of 23 site proposed.
But we must do better than that to help marine life – we will all benefit in the end.
