Species Action Plans
How the species were selected
The Calderdale Species Audit (2003) identified 244 species of conservation concern. It is not intended that Species Action Plans be written for each of these species. The needs of many species are catered for by the implementation of Habitat Action Plans, while others have conservation needs which have been addressed by a generic Priority Species action plan, which has been written to include actions applicable to all Priority Species.
Species Action Plans have been written for pink waxcap, twite and water vole. For each of these species there are ongoing conservation initiatives.
