High Value Open Habitats Survey
There has been some extremely important survey work undertaken in the past of these internationally important habitats. However, in areas this survey work is incomplete and where data is available it is often not in a modern web and GIS compatible format.
The aims of this project are to:
- Obtain more information on a range of lesser-known but both high-value and, often, sensitive habitats in the Coigach and Assynt area.
- Use the information gathered to inform better overall landscape planning, including for woodland expansion.
- Promote better awareness of these habitats among land managers, the local population and visitors.
