Protecting the Dover Strait

It's one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world but it's also home to important wildlife. A study has found that the Dover Strait between England and France isn't just a gateway for business but also a vital habitat for wild and marine life. The findings of the survery will now be used to ensure that the varied nature of the area is preserved for future generations. This report from Tom Savvides includes interviews with Chris Drake from Kent County Council, landscape planner Kate Ahern and Will Wright from Kent & Essex Inshore Fisheries & Conservation Authority.
