New report on Special Areas of Conservation in Wales

CCW have published a new report on the current state of knowledge of SACs in Wales as at September 2010 available here.

Overall, on land and in the seas 27% of designated habitats and species within SAC are considered to be in favourable condition, with 11% in a process of recovery.  But that leaves almost two thirds not doing well.   Within marine SACs, 80% of saltmarshes, 60% of intertidal sand and muflats and half of estuary and bays features are not in favourable condition or recovering towards it.  Much more work is clearly needed to improve on this situation.
