Scotland’s seas need your help – see the video.
We need to tell the Scottish Government: DontTakeTheP out of MPAs.
Our seas should be managed for public benefit – but they are in ecological decline.
We have two choices. We can either stick with the status-quo by zoning off just a few, small patches of our sea from damaging activities, or we can follow ecological science – and common sense – and manage our MPAs for recovery by properly protecting our seabed and marine species.
The Scottish Government needs a clear message that people in Scotland want to see real change in the health of our seas as their proposed management for Scotland’s new Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) falls far short of what’s needed to recover the health of our seas.
Amazingly the proposals could allow scallop dredging and bottom trawling to continue largely unchanged in many areas of Scotland’s inshore MPAs.
Please SHARE this film widely to make sure we DontTakeTheP out of MPAs.
