    Default Re: Studland Bay - what you need to do

    Chatting in my local pub in Hamble with a non boater revealed his view that boaters have virtually destroyed the sea horse habitat at Studland. When I suggested his source of this information may not have been so accurate he countered it was proven scientific fact.

    Seems the protagonists for getting boating banned here there and everywhere is, sadly, gaining momentum.

    Sad, but hardly surprising when you consider the BBC and press coverage. Type studland seahorse endangered into Google and you will get an impression.

    The beloved BBC pillock Chris ' I tear off childrens' fridge paintings ' Patten was conned by the Sea Horse Trust - all one of him, taking public charity donations so as to live by one of the most attractive sandy beaches in the UK while supplying zero evidence / data for his cause.

    Patten called sailors " gin swilling wreckers of the environment " which shows how much research he puts in...

    Packham, man. Get a grip.

    I think you'll find the seahorse trust lives in Ottery St Mary, not on the beach at Studland.
    Don't stoop to his level of research!

    And the man himself lives in Topsham, I believe.

    On the Evening Echo website today... https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/ne...ng-a-comeback/

    The third photo shows quite a healthy eel grass coverage and the write up is failtly well balanced, citing recent storms as causing problems and talking about the general problem of marine conservation quite a bit rather then Studland specifically. Comments from NGM are included but are presented in a sensible manner as an opinion almost, with the Dorset Wildlife Trust getting more column inches but again with very general comments not blaming anyone. No direct mention of eelgrass or anchorages for once.

    Thanks for the heads up. I had correspondence with the Echo after their antics last summer, which they seem to have taken seriously. Dorset Wildlife Trust, although obviously pro-conservation, have been conspicuously absent from the Studland argument stirred up by NGM. It was noteworthy too that they were very keen to support the BORG /RYA initiative a few years ago preparing a leaflet about anchoring in eelgrass. NGM refused to take part, then accused BORG of disagreeing with our own advice! If designation does occur, and we shall know later this year, DWT will be a major player in how it is implemented.
    Is Conservation for wildlife or conservationists?
