The Marine Conservation Society is a UK charity for the protection of our seas and its wildlife, it is currently encouraging the legislation of a network of Marine Protected Areas around the UK. Through its ‘Your Sea’s Your Voice’ campaign it is making people aware of the importance of MPA’s and allowing them to suggest certain areas of protection (Video 3) (URL 7).
This is encouraging a pro-active ecosystem based management of our seas and most importantly raising awareness of the extreme danger environments such as cold-water coral reefs are facing (URL 7).
