WCC Ecological Sites

These areas are based on criteria that assess:Representativeness (the characteristic natural vegetation and habitats of an area, including consideration of size, naturalness, diversity and pattern)Rarity (species that are unusual or rare in a local, regional or national context)Diversity/special features (of ecological units, ecosystems and physical features within a natural area as well as biological or physical features unusual or rare in a local, regional or national context)Connectivity and buffering potential (an area provides connectivity between fragmented indigenous habitats, buffers or enhances ecological values of a specific sites of value or provides seasonal or core habitat for specific indigenous species).  The closer an ecosystem is to its original state and the more original species that exist within it, the higher its value.
