The head of a local non-governmental organisation is looking forward to government delivering on its promise to bring legislation to set up a second marine protected area.

President of the Coral Reef Restoration Alliance, Susan Mahon says such a move will make it easier to protect the country's reefs.

Ms. Mahon was speaking to the media on the sidelines of a presentation at the Folkestone Park and Marine Reserve.

Her comments come just months after director of the Coastal Zone Management Unit, Leo Brewster, announced plans by government to connect the strip between Carlisle Bay in Bay Street and the Folkestone Park and Marine Reserve in Holetown, St. James, as one marine-protected area.
