Last update: 20 April 2016
In a world dominated by man, wildlife needs a voice and we together with the RSPB and other wildlife charities try to campaign on its behalf in our local area.
We have a team that looks at all the Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Forestry planning applications and takes action if they endanger protected species or habitats.
We also work with the local planning authorities when they are drawing up their development plans and the rules that are going to govern their decision making.
Lastly we consult the local naturalist community to identify Local Nature Conservation Sites. These are places valuable for the wildlife they support but which have no legal protection. We inform the local authorities of their locations, so they in turn can inform and warn potential developers.
If you want to inform us about wildlife sites you worry about, let us know via our Contact Us form.
