MMO working group

By October 27, 2011The Seahorse Trust News

The Seahorse Trust has been invited to join a group set up by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to work with a group of people and organisations looking at the best way to protect seahorses in the wild here in the UK. Unfortunately most of the areas that seahorses are found in are also the ones most used by mankind; so it puts untold pressure on them.
The work the trust has been doing at Studland and our success in getting both species protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) has helped to persuade the MMO that there is a need to have this important working group to address the problems facing Seahorses in the wild.
