In such challenging times with our concerns understandably close to home, we also feel close to nature. With a quick, online survey, the Seas of the Outer Hebrides project is seeking your views on how we might best manage our seas for the benefit of people and nature once we have returned to a more normal situation within our communities.
We’d like everyone who lives in the Outer Hebrides to have a say in the future of their seas through this short, online survey, which is available in either English or Gaelic at Seas of the Outer Hebrides Project (Opens in a new window or downloads a file). Everyone’s opinion matters: you don’t need to be an expert on anything marine to participate. It will take not more than about 10 to 15 minutes of your time.
Stornoway-based Seas of the Outer Hebrides Project Officer Charlie Main said:
“By completing our survey you will help us better understand how your community values the sea, what the key issues are, and how we might collectively approach making decisions about marine nature conservation in the future. The survey sits alongside the work we are currently doing with key stakeholders including fishing representatives and community groups. The survey results will be key element in reshaping the approach to marine nature conservation in the Outer Hebrides.”
