New UK Marine Protected Sites For Harbour Porpoises
Following years of campaigning, WDC is over the moon that the English and Welsh Special Areas of
Conservation (SACs) for harbour porpoises have finally been agreed and submitted to Europe. Scotland announced the creation of its first Conservation Area for porpoises in September last
Now the challenge is to make sure that these conservation areas are properly run so that harbour porpoises are protected. WDC will be working hard to make this happen.
