Management planA scheme for maintaining a nature reserve so that the purpose of its establishment continues to be achieved. In practice management largely consists of the perpetuation of the required habitat range. For example, if open water is needed, encroachment by reed beds must be prevented, and the management plan will take such potential habitat changes into account. It is impossible to run a reserve properly without devising and implementing such a scheme.
