Sites of special scientific interest (SSSI) are important sites designated and protected for being the best examples of their characteristic wildlife and geology. Many of these varied habitats have developed over hundreds of years through management practices such as grazing and forestry and, in most cases, need active management to maintain their conservation status. Also see Areas of nature conservation (ANC) and Areas of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI)
