What are High Conservation Values?

HCVs are biological, ecological, social or cultural values which are considered outstandingly significant or critically important, at the national, regional or global level

All natural habitats possess inherent conservation values, including the presence of rare or endemic species, provision of ecosystem services, sacred sites, or resources harvested by local residents.
