Maulds Meaburn Village Institute

The Society’s vision is for seas rich in wildlife, abundant fish stocks, pollution free beaches and bathing waters:  seas fit for wildlife and for people to enjoy.

 

Kay will describe the Society’s work in both coastal and oceanic areas.  She will describe commercial fishing techniques which are destroying marine habitats near the shore as well as in the oceans.  Kay will consider possible solutions to these problems, including the importance of ensuring that the fish we buy is from sustainable sources.

 

The Bar will be open from 7.00pm.

This is a fund raising evening for the MCS and MMVI.
