Date Explored is taken as the date it was first surveyed.
The conservation policy of the NCA states that the onus is on the explorers to conserve their finds.
The table only includes areas noted by the G5 surveyors in the course of their survey. There are probably many other areas requiring conservation. It was decided to publish areas requiring work in the CSS newsletter to enable others to do the work as the surveyors may not be returning to that for some time. (some areas only have 1 survey trip to complete it). Informing others would help avoid damage and speed the conservation up. The high grade survey is also a very useful conservation tool and lack of manpower means that frequently the physical conservation must be left to those who should have done it in the first place, the explorers.
