The UK Marine SACs Project website was a vehicle for communicating and distributing the learning, knowledge and outputs from the UK Marine SACs Project to its wider audience. Since the project was completed in 2001, this website has been closed and all its documents and background information can now be accessed through the UKMPA Centre.

Browse this map to locate the marine Special Areas of Conservation around the UK. These have all been approved by the UK Government and forwarded to the European Commission. Select a site and find more information on the features. If available, local websites provide examples of management schemes and conservation objectives and operations packages. For the twelve sites selected as part of the UK Marine SACs Project, see the case histories on how the management schemes were established.
