Definition

Critical Habitat is:[1]

  • Specific areas within the geographical area occupied by the species at the time of listing, if they contain physical or biological features essential to conservation, and those features may require special management considerations or protection
  • Specific areas outside the geographical area occupied by the species if we determine that the area itself is essential for conservation

Notes

Critical Habitat is a very specific thing and should be in capitals.
