Lundy's spectacular and often rare marine life was featured in a special documentary inspired by BBC's Wild Isles. Fifty years ago, the island’s surrounding waters became Britain’s first Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve, and in 2003, Britain’s first No Take Zone was established on the east side of the island. The programme is available to view on BBC iPlayer and explores the success of these initiatives.
The episode features Andrew Bengey from Lundy Diving, talking about the astonishing richness of the underwater natural world around Lundy, thanks to its special designation as a Marine Protected Area.
