Developed by a sub-group of the Exmoor Nature Conservation Advisory Group, the Exmoor Wildlife Research and Monitoring Framework contains an audit of current survey, monitoring and research being undertaken on Exmoor. In collaboration with local wildlife specialists it has developed lists of Exmoor Priority Species and Habitats, the aim of which is to identify those species and habitats on Exmoor of national or international biodiversity importance, populations that have reduced to levels of serious concern, and/or which would achieve most for biodiversity conservation if targeted for local action
