Scottish Natural Heritage is the lead public body responsible for advising Scottish Ministers on all matters relating to the natural heritage. Our purpose is to promote, care for and improve our natural heritage; enable greater understanding and awareness of nature and promote the sustainable use of Scotland’s natural heritage.
Scotland’s nature and landscapes are among our greatest assets. Nature gives us food and drinking water, energy and timber. It contributes to a clean and healthy environment. And it improves our well-being and quality of life.
Scottish Natural Heritage has been advising on wildlife impacts of both onshore and offshore wind power development since the early 1990s and has been helping develop key assessment methods over that period.
