Marine Article 17 Habitats Features

Natural Resources Wales

The Habitats Directive Article 17 reporting maps are a snapshot of the most up to date spatial data for features listed on the various Annexes of the Directive at the time of reporting. They represent the current known extent / location and status of features both inside and outside of SACs. Article 17 maps are reviewed and updated every 6 years as part of the Habitats Directive reporting process
