Site of importance for nature conservation
Usually selected within a local authority area. This process is often managed by the local wildlife trust together with representatives of the local authority and other local wildlife conservation groups. They support both locally and nationally threatened wildlife, and many sites contain habitats and species that are priorities under the county or UK biodiversity action plans.
