Highland Council Biodiversity Partnership
Since the Highland Biodiversity Project was started in 2002, over £600,000 of new funding has been spent on biodiversity action and planning in Highland. Over two thirds of this money (£357,500) was targeted towards local biodiversity projects. Seven Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs) have been produced, over 125 projects delivered and over 200 awareness-raising events held across the seven LBAP areas.

Scottish Wildlife Trust
While there have been some notable successes in recent years, wildlife is still in decline. We must be more ambitious in the scale and scope of our conservation efforts, particularly in the light of rapid environmental and climatic change. A stable future for wildlife can only be achieved through greater involvement by the people of Scotland and through re-building biodiversity at an ecosystem scale.
