Living Seas

As well as NWT’s Living Landscape projects, we are also working alongside other Wildlife Trusts on a nationwide Living Seas campaign. Our seas, and their precious resources, require support and protection from our elected officials, to ensure that our unique marine habitats and wildlife can thrive, from their offshore depths right into the coastal shallows.

NWT envisages and strives for Living Seas in which:
  • Marine wildlife and habitats are recovering from past declines as our use of the seas’ resources becomes environmentally sustainable.
  • The natural environment is adapting well to a changing climate, with ocean processes helping to slow down climate change.
  • People are inspired by marine wildlife and value the sea for the many ways in which it supports our quality of life.
