Favourable Conservation Status Definitions (TIN180)

This Technical Information Note has been prepared to inform you about Favourable Conservation Status Definitions. ‘Favourable Conservation Status’ (FCS) describes the situation in which a habitat or species is thriving throughout its natural range and is expected to continue to thrive in the future. It includes all occurrences of a habitat or species, both those in the wider environment and those in protected sites. By using evidence and the expertise of specialists we can define what FCS looks like for habitat and species and we can use this information to improve the work we do to recover nature.
