natural area

A physical and biological unit that exemplifies typical or unique vegetation, species, geological and aquatic features. At NCC the term is used to describe a land mass where adjacent and nearby properties contain the same or similar species or habitats. Much of our work is focused in priority natural areas that have both high ecological value and strong opportunities for conservation.
