Document Type: Monograph
This brief National Rivers Authority leaflet describes the Conservation in the Anglian Region. The Anglian Region hosts a rich variety of wildlife habitats, flora and landscapes associated with its streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, wetlands, estuaries and coastal waters. Many of these are protected by statutory designations, for example, 75% of the coastline is covered by a conservation and/or landscape designation. Five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty fall either partially or wholly within Anglian Region, along with Englands newest National Park the Broads. A fifth of England and Wales internationally important wetlands, from large estuaries such as the Humber and the Wash, to washlands such as the Ouse Washes, occur within this region. Along with over 700 Sites of Special Scientific Interest and 30 National Nature Reserves there is a very large conservation heritage and resource to protect.
