Government fails to keep marine ‘super year’ promise

WDC together with other conservation charities have criticised the UK Government for failing to meet its promise that 2021 would be a ‘super year’ for marine protection.

In a joint assessment, the conservation groups (part of the Wildlife and Countryside Link) have revealed that, by almost every measure, the government’s did nowhere near enough last year to help halt the decline of nature.

In January 2021, Environment Minister Rebecca Pow promised action to better protect marine environments and that the coming 12 months would be a ‘super year’. On close inspection however, it is now clear the government has failed to deliver on this promise and there has been no meaningful change in 11 out of 17 of the progress criteria, including efforts to curb the death and injury of whales and dolphins in nets.
