A vision for a National Marine Park in north Wales
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.
