A vision for a National Marine Park in north Wales

In the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act, no-one thought about the sea being part of a National Park’. Join NWWT along with Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) and group of panelists to start the conversation about the purpose and benefits of a National Marine Park in North Wales.

7:00pm - 8:00pm

About the event

In 2019, a National Marine Park was self-declared by the local community in Plymouth Sound. The learnings from this pioneering initiative helped to build the basis for a report led by BLUE which sets out a vision for establishing National Marine Parks in the seas around Britain. The vision celebrates biodiversity and heritage, improves public understanding and communicates the value of our coast and sea. 

Join North Wales Wildlife Trust’s chair, Howard Davies, who will be hosting the evening, along with Natasha Bradshaw from BLUE who will outline the vision. A group of panellists will discuss the concept, along with if and how such a vision would work in North Wales.  Panelists include:
-Rhys Owen, Snowdonia National Park Authority
-Kirsty Lindenbaum, Natural Resources Wales
-David Tudor, Blue Marine Foundation

And more to be confirmed.
