The area around Morecambe Bay is one of the UK's most important biodiversity hotspots. The diverse geology and landscape features and coastal and climatic influences have created an extraordinary diversity of habitats, which are home to internationally significant populations of birds, flora and invertebrates. The key habitats of importance include:

  • Coastal and floodplain wetlands- saltmarshes, lowland raised bogs and freshwater wetlands in valleys.
  • Farmland.
  • Species rich grasslands - on coastal headlands and limestone escarpments.
  • Native woodlands- supporting rare butterflies, plants and woodland birds.

The transitions between these habitats contributes to the area's outstanding diversity, as within a short distance it is possible to move from inter-tidal habitat to saltmarsh to terrestrial habitats such as unimproved grasslands, heath, swamp, fen, mire, woodland and scrub.

Cumbria and the Lake District are unique, the county contains the highest mountains and deepest lakes in England the variety and extent of its habitats are well known. Key habitats include:

  • Coastal and floodplain wetlands- lakeshore wetlands, saltmarshes, lowland raised bogs and freshwater wetlands in valleys.
