Marine Conservation Zone Project - Features catalogue (NE287)

Healthy seas, rich in marine wildlife, are not only important in their own right but contribute to our quality of life. As well as providing food, energy, industry and leisure our seas absorb and retain more carbon dioxide than the land and habitats such as seagrass beds and kelp forests play an important role in combating climate change. With some of the most diverse waters in Europe our seas are home to a fantastic range of wildlife including dolphins, corals and seahorses. Every species and habitat has a role to play in the health and resilience of our environment and contributes to our future wellbeing so it is vital that we protect them.
