Protect Cardigan Bay

"Welsh government plans to reopen Cardigan Bay to destructive dredging suggest it’s an even worse defender of our key conservation areas than Westminster – and that’s quite a feat" George Monbiot
The Welsh Government are currently consulting on proposals to open up Cardigan Bay to Scallop dredging. This is a highly damaging method of fishing which destroys the seabed. Much of Cardigan Bay is supposedly protected as 'Special Areas of Conservation' yet the seabed in these areas is under threat and the species that rely on a productive ecosystem, such as bottlenose dolphin and porpoise, are also under threat. Please sign the petition against this proposal, and find out more in this Guardian article.
