A strategy for Scottish invertebrate conservation
Ensuring important habitats, sites and endangered species are conserved
| ||Over the past two years the Initiative for Scottish Invertebrates (ISI) and Buglife – The Invertebrate Conservation Trust have successfully developed and delivered a strategy for Scottish invertebrate conservation. This strategy, developed through a grant from Scottish Natural Heritage, has gained wide support and endorsement and there is now a strong partnership between specialists, non-governmental organisations and statutory agencies. It demonstrates the enthusiasm and resolve of invertebrate conservationists to act together to bring about action for Scottish invertebrates.|
The strategy was launched in Edinburgh on 20th January 2009 by Michael Russell MSP, Scottish Government Minister for Environment and represents the first national implementation of the European invertebrate strategy. The vision of the strategy is for a Scotland in which invertebrates are valued and conserved for their key roles in a healthy environment and for their potential to bring people together to better use, understand and appreciate the natural world.
