The massive changes in land-use and habitat loss described in Chapter 1 have resulted in the remaining areas of unspoilt coastal landscapes being considered to be particularly precious. As a result nature conservation organisations world-wide have expended considerable time and money in an attempt to prevent the worst excesses of human destruction. Despite this, loss of habitat and degradation of the environment continues. This chapter reviews some of the general principles of habitat, species and site conservation management as they apply to coast.
