In August 2016, a consortium of interested organisations came together to look at what is currently being done to promote sustainable marine recreation.

The consortium includes:

Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum
North Wales Wildlife Trust
South and West Wales Wildlife Trust
Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau (PLAS) SAC Relevant Authorities Group
Pembrokeshire Marine SAC Relevant Authorities Group
Gwynedd County Council
Ceredigion County Council
Swansea Council
Snowdonia Active
Severn Estuary Partnership
Marine Conservation Society
Natural Resources Wales


As a group, we discussed ways of working more closely to deliver against marine conservation priorities, bring together existing good practice guidance and contributing towards building Wales’ brand as a world leading green tourism destination.
