Finding Sanctuary is working with stakeholders to design Marine Conservation Zones in the seas around south-west England as part of a wider network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The goal of the MPA network is to safeguard our region's undersea habitats and marine life, and to help ensure the long-term sustainability of marine resources in the region.
