Let's show Government how much we care about English seas

Please help us keep up the pressure!

Our campaign for 127 Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) in English seas is now in full swing, after the Government launched their public consultation late last year. Shamefully, the Government is only consulting on 31 MCZs, disregarding scientific advice that a minimum of 127 are needed to help protect our oceans for years to come.

We need Sea Champions to help us keep up the pressure on Government. Let's show them how much we care about English seas by taking the following actions:
  1. Share our video on Facebook and Twitter:  
  2. Take part in the consultation: It's easy to send an automated response.
  3. Join our Westminster rally: On 25th February, the Marine Conservation Society in association with Sea Life will lead hundreds of friends and supporters in a big loud colourful carnival style procession from the London Aquarium to the Palace of Westminster in support of 127 Marine Conservation Zones for English seas.

    Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and the team behind Channel 4’s hugely successful ‘Fish Fight’ series are backing the rally for their new TV show, and with YOUR help this is our chance to deliver the thousands of pledges we’ve collected in support of 127 Marine Conservation Zones for English seas to the Government.

    We’ll have divers in full scuba kit, performers dressed as giant sea creatures, kids in Ocean Super Hero costumes, banners, placards, flags and streamers - a fun day out with a serious message - ‘Now is the time the save our seas’.

    Please join us on the 25th February! You can register to take part in the rally here.
