Living Seas MCZ campaign

The North West Wildlife Trusts are calling for the government to designate a connected network of marine protected areas throughout our seas.

So far, 50 Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) have been designated nationally, including four special areas in the Irish Sea.

The government has recently launched a public consultation on 41 proposed MCZs throughout our seas, including six in the Irish Sea. The North West Wildlife Trusts want the public to show their support for the designation and management of these sites, and to ask the government to commit to completing the network.
