174. Conflicts in Conservation: Marine Conservation Zones

Description

The UK has a coastline of over 18,000km and many of our marine habitats and species are rare and are of international importance and some species are threatened. Some of these areas are already protected by designations such Special Areas of Conservation (SACs), RAMSAR sites, SSSIs and Special Protected Areas (SPAs – for birds) but conservationists want the government to designate many more areas as Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs).

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• Government consultation.
• Creating an ecological network.
