Recent ‘Extinction’ protests in the UK and elsewhere highlight contemporary concerns about the environment and the shared responsibility of all to take meaningful steps to save it. Key players in this advocacy are environmental charities. One of the areas in which they have been most active – in the UK and elsewhere, is in persuading governments to establish large Marine Protected Areas, especially around island territories. These are often created as ‘no-take’ areas, meaning that fishing – other than subsistence fishing, and other marine activities are prohibited, often to the detriment of local fishers. Invariably this requires a change in the current law. This article queries whether, in advocating for marine protected areas, environmental charities are overstepping the principles which determine charitable status.
