No news available News from the UK Marine Protected Areas Centre The virtual UK MPA Centre acts as a resource for information and news on Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the UK (including the Crown Dependencies of the Channel Isles and Isle of Man). This website holds factual information about MPAs in the United Kingdom, their designations, habitats, species, and activities. It provides current news, research and activities on MPAs in addition to linking to existing websites of individual European Marine Sites (a type of MPA), other MPAs in the UK and to partner websites. The website also draws together resources that help to build capacity amongst UK MPAs practitioners and facilitate sharing information, good practice and learning. en-uk
