How can you help?

Marine Conservation Zones campaign

The Government is creating Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) in the seas around England. These ‘zones’ will allow sustainable use of the sea whilst protecting a range of species and habitats found in English waters from damaging activity. Help urge the Government to create at least one MCZ in Suffolk's sea.

 

Ocean Giants Campaign

The Wildlife Trusts are proposing that 17 special areas around England and Wales should become protected places for our dolphins, whales and sharks. Find out how you can help Suffolk's ocean giants.
