Notes: These are the boundaries for Marine Conservation Zones, proposed Marine Conservation Zones and recommended Marine Conservation Zones. Marine Conservation Zones are designated under the Marine and Coastal Access Act (2009). They protect nationally important marine wildlife, habitats, geology and geomorphology. The Marine Conservation Zone Project concerns the selection of MCZs in English inshore waters and offshore waters next to England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Sites will be selected to protect not just the rare and threatened, but the range of marine wildlife.
