there is a new group of boat owners set up called the BORG who have a website (link below) where you can vote to ban anchoring and mooring at Studland Bay. Please cut and paste the link into your browser.
The moorings and anchoring at Studland are degradating the seagrass meadow at Studland Bay which means that when it is gone there will be no home for these amazing animals and it will be another little bit of the wild gone forever.
The Seahorse Trust strongly feels that environmentally friendly moorings should be put into Studland and get everyone to use these rather than mooring on conventiental moorings, this way the damage is stopped and everyone can still use this site. It is the best solution under the circumstances. If you feel as strongly as we do about this site then please vote to ban conventional mooring on the site.
Dont forget you can also have your say on the MCS website on the Your Sea you Voice page where you can vote for Studland to become protceted. It is only by people power can we cahnge these harmful practises.
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THE MOORINGS AND ANCHORS ARE DESTROYING THE SEAGRASS AND IT IS BEING DAMAGED BEYOND REPAIR.
