History of the Dorset heaths
Monitoring is carried out to help identify areas of need and potential management practices.
Dorset heathland habitats are considered internationally important. The Urban Heaths Partnership works to protect and enhance the Dorset heathlands.
Many animals and plants found on heathlands cannot be found in any other place and are protected by law.
