Skomer MNR

Please act now to support Skomer MNR being designated as a highly protected MCZ Triggered in part by a truly poor consultation document and a badly mishandled consultation process, a well organised and determined opposition to the to HP MCZ proposal has developed.

The badly handled consultation has generated legitimate concerns, but misleading and alarming disinformation spread by a combination of fishing interests and people who seem ideologically opposed to HP MCZs has frightened many people blindly objecting to the proposals.

The opposition is so well orchestrated that there appears to be real risk the entire process will be abandoned by Welsh Government unless they receive a sufficiently large number of responses supporting HP MCZs.

It is important that Welsh Government stick to their policy both for the sake of the Welsh marine environment and for the Skomer MNR in particular.

Please respond positively to the consultation.

A model response letter is available here

You need to fill in some information, delete any text not relevant to you and customise it as much as you can – the fewer identical responses Welsh Government receive the better – and don’t forget to save it with a suitable filename that identifies it as yours before you e-mail it!

E-mail your response letter to: Marine@wales.gsi.gov.uk by 31 July at the latest.

Please also write in support to the Welsh Environment Minister, John Griffiths.
