The article reports on the potential restriction of energy exploration in Cardigan Bay in Wales. Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks said that parts of the bay may be off limits for offshore energy exploration because of bottlenose dolphins. The news surfaced as the government announced that nearly 10,000 sq km of sea around Britain was in line for special status to protect marine life. Wicks also suggested that part of the Moray Firth in Scotland looked a more sustainable location for an oil and gas exploration licence.
