The Wildlife Trusts have launched a new campaign – #WaveOfSupport – to give everyone across the country the chance to back 41 new Marine Conservation Zones and protect our part of the Blue Planet around the English coast.
Recently, the government launched a consultation asking the public for their views about protecting a new group of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) – areas at sea where wildlife is protected from damaging activities. Three special places off the Sussex coast have been chosen for the public to comment on;
- Beachy Head East – Eastbourne to Hastings
- Inner Bank – 10km south of Hastings
- Selsey Bill and The Hounds – Selsey
None of these places will be designated unless there is public support for their protection. That’s why we are urging the public to have their say and join a giant #WaveOfSupport calling for all potential MCZs to be recognised and protected.
Deadline: Friday 20 July 2018
