At a time of scarce public resources, 2012–13 was a tough but productive year. Discover how our activities over the year met our strategic aims, as well as the Indicators of Success set by the Scottish Government.
We made significant progress in two areas that are key in the Scottish Government’s refreshed Scottish Biodiversity Strategy: (1) demonstrating the contribution that our natural heritage makes to economic recovery, and (2) emphasising the use of high-quality greenspace to underpin public health and well-being in urban areas.
Read case studies that exemplify our work in 2012–13, including:
- our collaborative effort in achieving sustainable deer management in the Breadalbane hills
- a partnership we took part in to increase access to the hills and glens of the Ochil Hills
- our work in securing Scotland’s reputation as a world-class destination for mountain biking
- our involvement in a wind farm proposal, resulting in improvements to its appearance and minimising the risk of disturbance to a pair of golden eagles.
