Marine Conservation Survey: Deadline midnight tonight…
If you are a British diver or snorkeler, you have until midnight tonight to have your say on how our marine environment is valued, by completing the following survey.
The Angling Trust, The British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) and the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) are working with the University of Aberdeen to write a report that will be used to influence decision-making around 127 Marine Protected Zones in England, and a yet to be determined number of Marine Protected Areas in Scotland. The survey results will help ensure that the specific needs and values of divers are taken into account when decisions are made regarding these areas.
At the heart of the research project is the personal and non-monetary value of key sites around the UK. Researchers are particularly interested in the views of UK divers on the sites they visit, what it is about these sites they value the most and whether they believe these sites are worth protecting.
So please complete this survey and be specific about your diving and snorkeling activity around the British coastline. You have until midnight tonight.
