Few, if any, coastal habitats are truly natural, but the two principal habitats in this chapter have a special conservation significance because they have largely been created through human intervention. In nature conservation terms the habitats lie between those which are (or are considered to be) entirely natural and those which are intensively used, with little or no conservation interest. The former include inaccessible sea cliffs and newly formed sand dunes, the latter intensively cultivated grasslands and cereal crops. These ‘secondary’ wildlife habitats (as defined in Chapter 5) are dealt with separately below and their key attributes discussed.
