Saving Species - Series 3 - 20. Marine Conservation Zones

Brett Westwood presents the latest news on the designation of conservation areas around the English and Welsh coast. Are wildlife considerations in the final decisions?

Are we doing enough to protect the wildlife in our coastal waters? The government is in the process of deciding which areas around England and Wales to protect as conservation areas, but wildlife organisations are concerned. Only 31 out of the 127 recommended areas are being considered for protection, and some important wildlife areas are left off the list. Our seas are used by very many people, for leisure, fishing, wind farms, oil and gas; so how does wildlife fair with so many pressures on our seas? Marine Conservation Zones are under the spotlight. Presenter: Brett Westwood Producer: Mary Colwell Editor: Julian Hector.
