Overview of the Main Conservation
Issues being Addressed
The New Forest cSAC is under threat from
the lack of integrated management and a decline in traditional
management practices. These pressures coupled with high recreational
and development demands due to its considerable popularity
and its location in one of the most densely populated areas
in Western Europe have led to numerous conservation concerns.
The New Forest LIFE II Project provided a package of actions
designed to tackle these threats and provide for the sustainable,
long-term management of the New Forest cSAC.
