Extent of Semi-Natural Habitat in Wales (Indicator 43)
Natural Resources Wales mapped the extent of semi-natural habitat in Wales using recent satellite data and the existing Phase 1 Habitat Map, which also included field survey methods. We found that in 2017-2018, 31% of Wales is semi-natural habitat, similar to 2016-2017. There is a big difference between upland areas (74%) and lowland areas (19%). We report the figures to Welsh Government for Indicator 43 of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, areas of healthy ecosystems in Wales.
