Marine Conservation Zones

On the 30th of January 2015 only 23 of the 37 Marine Conservation Zones proposed by DEFRA for UK waters were put forward by the government for public consultation. This is frustrating as it is not the first time this has happened in the UK and proposed areas have fallen through. In 2013, 127 MCZs were proposed and only 27 were actually designated – this is not enough to prevent ecological damage to our seas!
