This is really interesting, not to mention encouraging. I definitely like the sound of a marine conservation zone in the heart of London... :)

The Thames has become a model for what can be done in cleaning up urban rivers. Something like this is a lovely cherry on top. Thanks.

This is a very interesting and encouraging story! I would like to see a MCZ in the Thames to protect these amazing animals and others too. In a world where so many species are endangered and on the brink of extinction, this is certainly encouraging news. Improvements in water quality and also habitat have also encouraged these species to take up residence in the Thames and increase populations. This is something that all Nations including our own need to do to increase species numbers and help mitigate the massive number of species which are declining due to environmental pollution and degradation.
