Medium - based upon reliable but incomplete / partially representative data

Climate change and severe weather habitat shifting and alteration likely in short term (within 4 years) whole area/population (>90%) slow but significant deterioration high
Energy production and mining mining and quarrying past (and unlikely to return) and no longer limiting whole area/population (>90%) slow but significant deterioration low

Marine Coastal/Supratidal   85 85 100 good (> 90%) favourable

Little/none of site covered (<10%)  No management planning has taken place  Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity  low
