Help us get a network of protected areas in English seas – places where wildlife and habitats are safe and where fish stocks can recover. Become a Friend of Marine Conservation Zones.

Become a Friend of Marine Conservation Zones

The UK's seas are home to half our wildlife but many undersea habitats have already been lost, fish stocks have declined and species are at risk. In early 2015 the government will begin a consultation on up to 37 new proposed Marine Conservation Zones around the English coast – areas of the seabed where marine wildlife and habitats are protected. Please join our growing team of ‘Friends of Marine Conservation Zones’ and help to ensure all these precious places get the protection they need. Become a Friend and:

 - Get monthly email updates leading up to the government’s consultation in 2015

- Get guidance on how to respond to the consultation to ensure your voice is heard

- Support our national and local work to help save marine habitats and wildlife

- Some Wildlife Trusts send additional details on local Marine Conservation Zones to Friends

Your details will not be passed onto third parties outside The Wildlife Trusts. Your details will be used to let you know more about our work to protect wildlife and how you can support your local Wildlife Trust.
