Save Cardigan Bay!

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.

We therefore call upon the Welsh Government to withdraw their proopsals and protect the habitats of dolphins and porpoises.

More details are in this article -  http://www.theguardian.com/environment/georgemonbiot/2015/nov/09/allowing-scallop-dredging-in-strictly-protected-dolphin-reserves-is-madness

Please sign the petition and tell the Welsh Government that such destructive fishing methods are incompatible with protected areas.
