Dec 22nd, 2014 | By

For a number of years, Dorset Wildlife Trust has been working hard to get Studland Bay designated as a Marine Conservation Zone. However the Government is hesitating and needs to see strong local support for the designation before it will agree to it.

In January 2015 there will be a public consultation giving everyone a chance to voice their support or concerns about designation. DWT is encouraging everyone who uses and loves Studland Bay to send in a personal and positive response to the consultation.
