Living Seas is Ulster Wildlife’s vision for the future of the seas that surround us. A major component for achieving Living Seas will be the establishment of a network of ‘Marine Protected Areas’ (MPAs)* around the coast of NI.

The Living Seas Officer will be a passionate promoter of our Living Seas vision and their main focus will be working closely with a number of identified coastal communities to promote the value of MPAs and to encourage the creation of community-led voluntary MPAs in Northern Ireland.

The postholder will be working with coastal communities across Northern Ireland, building and developing relationships and involving local people to develop their own Living Seas Vision. All these people may have different views about what is important to protect in the sea, therefore, the postholder will use their excellent negotiation and networking skills to bring people together to take forward their initiatives and create and promote voluntary Marine Protected Areas.

*MPAs are a primary mechanism for protecting life at sea. They are “any areas of intertidal or subtidal terrain, together with its overlying water and associated flora, fauna, historical and cultural features, which has been reserved by law or other effective means to protect part or all of the enclosed environment” (IUCN international definition).
