Estuaries & Coast
It’s all in the name. The special qualities of the Coast & Heaths AONB are defined by the coastal position as much as by it’s terrestrial habitats.
The Blyth, the Alde & Ore, the Deben and the Stour & Orwell estuaries meander into the Suffolk and Essex coastlines, each attracting community support, visitor interest and various forms of designated status.
Marine Pioneer Project
The Marine Pioneer explored the value of nature in social, ecological and economic terms to understand how a ‘natural capital approach’ could work in a local setting.
This project informed the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan and helped raise the profile of nature’s value in East Anglia.
