Conservation

Post #1 by GrannyGrottbags » Sun Nov 24, 2013 10:07 am

The government has announced it will create 27 new marine conservation zones (MCZs) to protect wildlife in the seas around the English coast.

The MCZs will help seahorses, coral reefs and oyster beds to remain safe from dredging and bottom-trawling.

The Marine Conservation Society welcomed the "significant milestone".

But it warned there were still fewer than a quarter of the number of MCZs recommended by scientists to complete an "ecologically coherent" network.
