SPECIES

Hampshire is very rich in a wide range of species due to a number of factors:

  • the merging of two climatic zones
  • the county's situation on the coast
  • the broad extent and stability of a considerable range of habitats
  • the New Forest.

An audit of species in Hampshire identified 493 priority species. Conservation action for most of Hampshire's priority species can be achieved through positive habitat management. Species action plans have been written for those species not sufficiently catered for in relevant habitat action plans.
