Marine and coastal
Find out more about the laws protecting our seas to oil spills and fisheries.
The UK's coasts and seas are home to a huge diversity of wildlife that is vital for human livelihoods and wellbeing.
The laws that protect our sealife
Laws provide a strong foundation and security for the protection of our marine wildlife.
The indirect effects of fisheries - such as pollution, litter, and, most importantly, overfishing affecting the food chain - endanger seabird populations and other wildlife.
Save a species
Albatross chicks are being attacked by invasive mice on Gough Island. We have a plan to restore this special place to the seabird paradise it once was and save Tristan albatrosses from extinction – before it’s too late.
