North East Scotland Wetland Inventory

Thursday 1st of March 2007

The North East Scotland wetland inventory examined the current wetland resources of Moray, Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City. A principal aim was to identify sites with potential for restoration, expansion or creation.

Information of existing habitats was collated from a range of surveys and mapped using GIS software. Fen, reedbed and wet woodland habitats were then filtered by a number of constraints, to identify sites suitable for expansion. A map of flat areas was visually assessed, to identify areas of forest and grassland suitable for creating additional wetland habitats. These were then filtered by the same constraints as existing habitats, to prioritise sites.

20 Years of Action for Biodiversity in North East Scotland

Thursday 23rd of March 2017

The North East Scotland Biodiversity Partnership was one of four pilot Local Biodiversity Action Plan Partnerships (LBAPs) set up two decades ago to deliver action for biodiversity at a local level for Scotland. Through the tremendous support and hard work of many groups and individuals, the Partnership has gone from strength to strength, delivering action on a range of issues including species protection, habitat creation, invasive non-native species control, community engagement and awareness-raising.

20 Years of Scottish Biodiversity Partnerships

Wednesday 26th of October 2016

Local Biodiversity Action Plan Partnerships (LBAPs) were set up in the UK as part of Britain's response to ratifying the Convention on Biological Diversity following the Rio Earth Summit in 1992.In 1996, four pilot LBAPs were established in Scotland to deliver action for biodiversity at a local level. There are now more than twenty Biodiversity Partnerships delivering a wide range of biodiversity conservation, communication and education work in their local areas. This publication draws together some of this work in a celebration of two decades of action across Scotland.
