Both Keith Hiscock and Robert Irving have been involved with all things marine around the small island of Lundy in the Bristol Channel for more years than we care to admit! We are both involved with the management of the Marine Protected Area around the island (which includes the UK’s only statutory No Take Zone) and decided it was high time that the history of the marine reserve was documented.

After 40 years of marine conservation at Lundy, a record has been produced summarising how and when the major marine conservation landmarks occurred, describing some of the marine life highlights of the island, and celebrating the success of all of those who have been involved over the years. This book also provides the opportunity to document some of the early studies of marine life that used scuba diving and the methods that had to be developed to sample and monitor that life.In the book, the two people who have most consistently contributed to the development of marine conservation at Lundy, Keith Hiscock and Robert Irving, explain briefly (and illustrate profusely) what happened when and how but also identify how much more there is still to find-out about the marine wildlife of a fascinating island. 40yearsauthors (53K)
