15A NCAC 12H .0201       OBJECTIVES OF REGISTRY

The Registry of Natural Heritage Areas is a recognition

program based upon an official list of significant natural areas derived from

the Natural Heritage Program's inventory of elements of natural diversity.  The

registry is a voluntary, non‑regulatory, non‑binding recognition

program.  Objectives of the Registry of Natural Heritage Areas are to:

(1)           protect significant examples of the total diversity

of natural features occurring in the state;

(2)           establish reserves for breeding stocks of

endangered, threatened, or otherwise unique species of plants and animals;

(3)           encourage educational activities and scientific

research;

(4)           preserve unique and unusual natural features;

(5)           protect natural areas against uses which would

destroy their natural conditions.
