Derbyshire Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs)

There are over 80 Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) in Derbyshire, England. These Sites of Special Scientific Interest are some of Derbyshire's very best wildlife and geological sites and include some of our most spectacular and beautiful habitats.

It is essential to preserve our remaining natural heritage for future generations. Wildlife and geological features are under pressure from development, pollution, climate change and unsustainable land management. SSSIs are important as they support plants and animals that find it more difficult to survive in the wider countryside. Protecting and managing SSSIs is a shared responsibility, and an investment for the benefit of future generations.
