This project must not go ahead. It is clear there will be damage in a number of environmental areas including: Loss of rare invertebrates from Sizewell Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) This area is cited by Natural England as being ‘of exceptional interest for their invertebrate fauna’. New habitat has been created at EDFE’s Aldhurst Farm to compensate for loss of habitat at the Sizewell C site. However, Friends of the Earth research demonstrates that many of the rarer specialist species would not thrive here due to high nutrient levels in the water. Death of a large number of fish in the cooling system, and negative effect on the habitat for the harbour porpoise. Irrepairable damage to the hydrology of the surrounding Sizewell Marshes SSSI and RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve, which in turn will have a negative impact on the many species of flora and fauna that are currently found there.
