The Marine Conservation Zone Project is a partnership project working with people who use the sea for their livelihood or leisure to identify Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs). The Project area has been split into four regional MCZ projects covering the south-west (Finding Sanctuary), Irish Sea (Irish Sea Conservation Zones), North Sea (Net Gain) and south-east (Balanced Seas).

You can input information about how you use the sea into their interactive map, that will be used to help plan Marine Conservation Zones.

Take a look at the interactive map on the Marine Conservation Zone project website to find out how you can contribute.
