Natural England have not taken on board advice in terms of what is needed to be done to conserve legally protected stauromedusae.

MCZs as ''conservation zones'' represent ''the'' best marine sites in England, and as a result they would be monitored and conserved, professionally, skillfully and scientifically.

There is now a serious risk of decline from anthropogenic impact and increased footfall, because of the new 'public engagement' intertidal policy. More sensitive habitats, features and species, which may not be designated, will likely decline or be destroyed first, and others may follow. 'Public engagement', intertidal monitoring and classroom use will decrease habitat value and this is not only bad in terms of conservation but it is also illegal for landowners, who may have to restrict access!
