University of Hull - Wild at port

January 7, 2010

Academics from the University of Hull are to lead a EUR4 million (£3.6 million) European project to determine the effects of ports on wildlife in estuaries. They will then make recommendations for the better protection of affected fauna around four ports in the Humber - Hull, Immingham, Grimsby and Goole - plus Antwerp in Belgium and Hamburg and Bremerhaven in Germany. The university will work with Associated British Ports and the Environment Agency to ensure that the development and management of the ports follows the European Union's ecological protection legislation.
