Scientific Advisory Committee

Made up of external specialists, the Committee introduces a new element of advice and expertise to Scottish Natural Heritage.

The Scientific Advisory Committee briefs our Board and staff on scientific matters such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It also reviews the quality of SNH research and feeds into working groups.

All Committee members come from outside SNH, and each has relevant and valuable experience to share with us. A member of our Board is Chair.
