Deep-sea Conservation for the United Kingdom


This website has been developed as part of a wider project to raise awareness of the deep-sea heritage of the UK. The Deep-sea Conservation for the UK (DC-UK) project tackles three central elements – biodiversity, management policy and public awareness. DC-UK provides information on threats to offshore biodiversity, practical case studies to help future conservation management and disseminates this information to a wider public (find out more about our partners and visit the associated website here ).

The deepseascape.org website is being developed primarily as a resource for images of the deep-water environment around the UK, to illustrate different habitat types and biodiversity. The image library comprises an easily accessible relational database with a choice of search options. The site also covers related topics including information regarding exploration of UK deep waters, different habitat types with specific examples, and information on image collection methods.

The site aims to provide images for use by the media, NGO’s, decision makers, educators and the general public with the aim to raise awareness of the biology, conservation and threats to UK deepwater habitats and species.

This website has been developed under the DC-UK project sponsored by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
