WREN - Wester Ross Environment Network
 

Welcome to the Wester Ross Environmental Network (WREN)!

Founded in 2004, WREN is an independent voluntary organisation made up of local people with a personal or professional  interest in the environment. The group is one of seven regional local biodiversity action groups in the Highlands of Scotland, and includes individuals, community groups, local businesses and representatives from the Highland Council, SNH, RSPB, National Trust for Scotland, Wester Ross Fisheries Trust and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

The word biodiversity was defined at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 and comes from two words, biological (everything that is living) and diversity (variety). It is a way of describing the variety of all living things and the complex relationships between them, not forgetting that human beings are also a part of biodiversity!

WREN aims to protect, enhance and promote biodiversity in Wester Ross. The group helped to produce the Wester Ross Biodiversity Action Plan and has developed a series of projects to help deliver it. A copy of the Wester Ross Biodoversity Action Plan can be downloaded below.
