Project area

The maps below illustrate the areas that were covered by the Irish Sea Conservation Zones project and our three sister projects around England: Net Gain, Balanced Seas and Finding Sanctuary.

The Irish Sea Conservation Zones project area covered roughly 40% of the entire Irish Sea, or around 18,000 square km.

This included the inshore waters of England, plus the offshore waters of Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man up to the territorial line with Ireland.
