The small waterbodies with the biggest value
We’re working with our partners to map priority ponds – small waterbodies which have a high conservation value.
Freshwater Habitats Trust played an instrumental role in security priority habitat status for ponds in 2007. Now we’re working with Natural England to identify and record more of the country’s best ponds. Identifying priority ponds (now a habitat of principal concern) helps agencies, organisations and individuals to protect and enhance ponds and the critical freshwater wildlife they support.
