Protected Marine Wildlife Species

Mark Gray

All sea birds, and over 30 marine animal species, are legally protected in the UK wherever they are found. • Wildlife protection laws have been strengthened. Harming these protected wildlife species may now be a criminal offence, resulting in a fine of up to £5,000 and up to six months in prison. • Additional protection measures apply to wildlife in special areas around the UK, which are designated ‘safe havens’ for marine wildlife. • This Guidance Note will tell you which marine wildlife species are protected in the UK, and how to work with the authorities to help to protect wildlife, and stay the right side of the law.
