The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is a UK charity dedicated to the protection of the marine environment and its wildlife. Since its formation in 1983, MCS has become a recognised authority on marine conservation and is regularly consulted by Government for its views on a range of marine issues.
MCS provides information and guidance on many aspects of marine conservation and produces the annual Good Beach Guide (www.goodbeachguide.co.uk) and Good Fish Guide, as well as promoting public participation in volunteer projects and surveys such as Beachwatch, Adopt-a-Beach and Basking Shark Watch.
MCS has successfully lobbied for a recent Government commitment to draft a comprehensive Marine Bill to provide better protection for marine species and habitats and establish a governing system for the sustainable management of the marine environment.
