The marine environment around England is extremely rich and diverse. England’s seas contain amazing underwater landscapes and over 10,000 species, including many of national and European importance.
Natural England works to ensure that our marine environment is
better understood, valued and protected.
Natural England's work in the marine environment:
(11 November 2013) Natural England today welcomed the launch of the Marine and Coastal Concordat which will encourage investment around the coast.
(8 November 2013) Helped by the local community, the Isles of Scilly Seabird Recovery Project is gearing up to protect rare nesting seabirds by keeping the islands of St Agnes and Gugh ‘rat-free’ for at least 25 years.
(23 October 2013) Natural England today welcomed the world wide ban on the discharge of a chemical at sea that killed thousands of birds on the south coast earlier this year.
(17 September 2013) Two huge sandbanks have been detected lying to the south east and northwest of the Isles of Scilly in the latest round of marine monitoring surveys carried out by Natural England and published today.
