What are Living Seas?

Living Seas is The Wildlife Trusts’ vision for the future of the UK’s seas.

Within Living Seas, marine wildlife thrives, from the depths of the ocean to the coastal shallows.

The Wildlife Trusts believe that Living Seas are possible within 20 years – one generation.

In Living Seas:

-Wildlife and habitats are recovering from past decline as our use of the seas’ resources becomes environmentally sustainable.

-The natural environment is adapting well to a changing climate, and ocean processes are helping to slow down climate change.

-People are inspired by marine wildlife and value the sea for the many ways in which it supports our quality of life.

Northern Ireland is behind the rest of the UK in the implementation of marine legislation. This provides an unrivalled opportunity for radical change in the management of our marine environment in order to achieve Living Seas.
