England has some of the finest marine wildlife in Europe. England’s 39 European marine sites are a type of Marine Protected Area and aim to protect some of our most special marine and coastal habitats and species. These sites stretch from the Isles of Scilly in the south-west to the Berwickshire and North Northumberland Coast in the north-east. They are part of the European-wide Natura 2000 network.
