Rebecca Pow – 2020 Comments on Solway Firth and Seabirds

The comments made by Rebecca Pow, the Environment Minister, on 3 December 2020.

The UK seabird population is of global importance with the UK holding more than a quarter of Europe’s breeding seabirds. This addition to England’s vital MPA network is a significant step forward in our ongoing commitment to protect and improve the resilience of our marine environment and its precious wildlife.

Together with the development of our Seabird Conservation Strategy, we will help the coastal environment to recover and thrive for future generations to enjoy.
