MCS have been working hard with the community at both Cawsand (within the ReMEDIES project area in collaboration with Ocean Conservation Trust), and also at Portland Harbour (outside the ReMEDIES area) to influence boat users in the delivery of more environmentally sound mooring and anchoring.

We've undertaken scientific surveys (Final report June 2023) of the seabed at Cawsand to monitor the re-growth of seagrass over 4 years, and undertaken interviews (Social Science Report) with local boat users, and held workshops (Workshop report Nov 2023) at both communities in November 2023.

The findings will help ReMEDIES and project partners to deliver more effective communications and strategies to achieving what we want - boating communities that can still enjoy the use of our special places, whilst ensuring protection of important habitats.
