Annex II species that are a primary reason for selection of this site

1166 Great crested newt  Triturus cristatus
Situated in north-west Wales, high counts since the mid-1980s confirm the presence of a large and viable great crested newt Triturus cristatus population occupying water-filled depressions that have resulted from sand extraction from the dune system. Glan-traeth is lightly grazed by domestic livestock, thereby maintaining the open terrestrial habitat required for feeding and sheltering of adults.
