Defining Ramsar Site Protected Features and Ramsar Sites with Marine Components 2015

Marine Protected Areas

Abstract

Ramsar sites are wetlands of international importance designated under the Ramsar Convention. This paper sets out the process for identifying Ramsar sites with marine components in a consistent manner so that a UK level list can be generated as part of the UK MPA stocktake. The intended outcome is that each country nature conservation body (CNCB) will be able to supply JNCC with a list of their country's Ramsar sites with marine components, the marine feature(s) considered to be afforded protection and those UK MPA network feature(s) with which these listed features are considered to correlate.
