Overwhelming support for campaign to save Scotland’s seas

Over 500 members of the public have already answered the Scottish Wildlife Trust's call to save Scotland's seas.

As part of a new plan for managing Scotland's seas, the Scottish Government is running a consultation for a network of new 'Nature Conservation' Marine Protected Areas to protect and enhance nationally important marine habitats and species.

Alex Kinninmonth, the Trust's Living Seas Policy Officer, said: “We are delighted with the public's response since the campaign was launched last week. It clearly shows how precious Scotland's marine wildlife is to the people of Scotland.

“This is make or break time for Scotland's seas, and I would encourage anyone that hasn't done so already to respond to the Scottish Government's consultation and help protect Scotland's wildlife beneath the waves.” 

The Scottish Wildlife Trust is calling for members of the public to help ensure the government's proposals become a reality. There is still a danger that the scientific recommendations are not followed and the planned network is not completed.
