"Throughout the countryside we have been able to identify specially favoured sites which support vulnerable species, or particularly large numbers of birds, or both. These important bird areas are cornerstones of conservation. ...In this book are listed 256 such areas. They are all of international importance and qualify for protection under the European Communities Directive on the Conservation of Wild Birds, and many also under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance. ...It is our hope that this book will advance the conservation of these areas, and will assist owners and managers of land, decision-makers in central and local Government, in other statutory bodies, and in conservation organisations to be more aware of the significance of the list as a whole, and of their responsibilities in safeguarding our heritage of birds".
