COAST win Observer Ethical Award

The Observer ethical awards are instrumental in progressing ethical thinking and ideas in the UK.

Their aim is to reward those pioneering a sustainable future for the country and to recognise the very best products, innovations and schemes that make living ethically achievable; they also highlight those who give ethical living a mainstream and practical appeal.

In the Conservation section, the judges selected COAST - the community-based project on the Isle of Arran - which aims to protect the unique biodiversity of Lamlash Bay and to give its productivity a chance to recover for future generations.

Celebratory-panelist Deborah Meaden said - ‘It was wonderful to see a local community say: “We’re going to do this.” After all, it’s easy to gain support for a fluffy animal, but nobody cuddles fish.’

For the last thirteen years COAST have worked with fishermen, politicians and wider communities to gain protection for Lamlash Bay - the award recognised their staying power and complete dedication.
