South Lanarkshire Biodiversity Partnership
The South Lanarkshire Biodiversity Partnership website contains information on members of the partnership, the Biodiversity Strategy, various projects and ways for people to get involved.
The Partnership has produced a Biodiversity Strategy (2018 – 2022) which describes our key ecosystems and the approach we are taking to protect them. Each ecosystem, and a series of cross-cutting themes have associated outcomes and actions that detail projects and plans across South Lanarkshire.
This document was produced alongside a Strategic Environmental Assessment, which identified potential benefits and negative impacts to the environment of implementing the Strategy. The Environmental Report and Post Adoption Statement detail the results of this process.
The Biodiversity Partnership includes:
- Butterfly Conservation Scotland
- Central Scotland Green Network Trust
- Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership
- Clyde River Foundation
- Forestry and Land Scotland
- Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network
- Hamilton Natural History Society
- North Lanarkshire Council
- Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
- Scottish Environment Protection Agency
- Scottish Natural Heritage
- Scottish Wildlife Trust
- South Lanarkshire Council
We provide information and guidance, as well as ways for you to get involved with biodiversity and the outdoors. There are resources to use, such as Your Nature Space cards which are pocket guides that can be used to assess the biodiversity value of your local site whether it is a woodland, bog or school grounds.
