Enhancing and protecting Scotland's biodiversity – SEPA’s restoration fund

The Scottish public's awareness of and interest in protecting and enhancing Scotland's rich biodiversity is stronger than ever thanks to the United Nations International Year of Biodiversity 2010 (IYB 2010). The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) was one of a number of Scottish organisations that participated in protecting and enhancing biodiversity in Scotland and increasing awareness, understanding and engagement in biodiversity issues throughout last year.

Scotland's Water Environment Restoration Fund, which is administered by SEPA, has already provided over £1.5 million to local and national projects across the country since 2008 to improve rivers, streams, lochs, wetlands and coastal areas. Learn more at;
