Defining Our Priorities and Actions for Species Recovery


Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS) must describe opportunities, set priorities, and propose potential measures for the recovery and enhancement of species. The approach involves two broad stages: identifying threatened and other locally significant species relevant to the strategy area, and determining which of these species should be prioritised for recovery action.  The work is being overseen by a Species Recovery Technical Advisory Group, comprising the county’s species specialists and county recorders.
