Scottish Natural Heritage

Scottish Natural Heritage is 'All of nature for all of Scotland'

Scotland's natural heritage is its wildlife, habitats, landscapes and natural beauty. Scotland is renowned for its attractive scenery and wild places and has a huge diversity of landscapes, habitats and wildlife. These are part of what makes Scotland special and are among the country's greatest assets.

Scottish Natural Heritage is funded by the Scottish Government. Our purpose is to:

Promote care for and improvement of the natural heritage.
Help people enjoy it responsibly.
Enable greater understanding and awareness of it.
Promote its sustainable use, now and for future generations.

SNH's work is about caring for the natural heritage, enabling people to enjoy it, helping people to understand and appreciate it, and supporting those who manage it. Their aspiration is for the natural heritage to be used and managed sustainably. Moving towards that vision will require action by a wide range of organisations and individuals.
