Lyme Bay conservation project praised at European awards
A CONSERVATION project has put Lyme Bay on the map at a European award ceremony.
The Lyme Bay Fisheries and Conservation Reserve project, was the only UK finalist to get recognised at the EU-Natura 2000 awards held in Brussels.
Project officer Kate West and local Lyme Bay fisherman David Sales were ‘proud’ to attend the inaugural event on behalf of the local conservation work.
Not only did the project scoop a spot in the final of the ‘reconciling interests and perceptions’ category, it was the only marine project to get recognised.
A total of 22 global projects were chosen from across Europe in a variety of categories and five winners were announced.
