Targets for pond conservation

South yorks_Sykehouse pond _II

The Habitat Action Plan targets that we developed in the mid-2000s showed the extent of the work  needed to be done to protect our ponds. We still use these targets today.

Target 1
Maintain the number of Priority Pond sites.

Target 2
Maintain the quality of Flagship Pond sites.

Target 3
Restore pond sites to deliver Priority Species targets.

Target 4
Create new pond sites of high quality potential.
This is being delivered through the Million Ponds Project, led by Freshwater Habitats Trust and supported by the many partners in the project.
