Conservation Corner (2): Lundy Island
A Maritime Conservation Creature!

Here in Swansea, I often find myself gazing out to the Mumbles Lighthouse, in the direction of Devon. There is a small island out there in the Bristol Channel called Lundy. I am delighted to read that it has just been designated England's first Maritime Conservation Zone.
Lundy and its waters are the home of seals, corals and lobsters. Take a look at some of the inhabitants in this BBC footage.
