CLA statement on over 95 percent of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) now classed as in favourable or recovering condition

CLA President William Worsley said: "The increase of more than one
million hectares of SSSI's in favourable or recovering condition could not have
been achieved without the active management undertaken by farmers and land
managers. Without their help some of the most important habitats in the UK would
have declined, leading to the loss of some of England's rarest species.
