4. Flagship ponds
There will be a large number of Priority Ponds - too many to closely protect and monitor each one, so a number of Flagship Ponds will be selected (this will be about 1 % of the Priority Ponds). This will help to focus resources, enabling monitoring to ensure that the high pond quality is maintained in the long term. To see the suggested criteria for identifying Flagship Ponds, download doc.
