We have a legal duty to conserve and enhance biodiversity. Working together across all our services, we are developing the best ways to do this and, at the same time, contributing to other policies and initiatives. The Statutory Biodiversity Duty ‒ Report on Delivery gives more details.
We are part of the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership, which covers the local authority areas of Angus and Perth and Kinross.
The partnership is made up of statutory bodies, local authorities, non-government organisations and individuals and has produced a Local Biodiversity Action Plan to ensure that locally and nationally important species and habitats are conserved and enhanced through focused local action.
Tayside Local Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2026
Tayside Biodiversity Partnership’s Local Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2026 charts the way ahead in protecting the multitude of flora and fauna that flourish across the county, as well as their habitats, bringing together organisations, communities and individuals. The new plan has more than 140 projects you might want to get involved in.
Funds are available for projects aiming to deliver biodiversity conservation and enhancement for UK species and habitats, subject to certain conditions. For more information visit the Tayside Biodiversity website.
Natural Angus is a perpetual calendar which highlights the wealth of biodiversity found in Angus.
