South Ayrshire Council set to Sign Biodiversity Declaration

We are committed to making South Ayrshire a better place to live and a sustainable and green future plays a key part in this. We are therefore proud to announce that we will sign the Scottish Government's Edinburgh Declaration on biodiversity. This reaffirms our commitment to making biodiversity an integral part of our green recovery from COVID-19.

The signing of the declaration is supported by the publication of our third South Ayrshire Council Biodiversity Duty Report. This report gives information on the progress we have made towards fulfilling our duty to biodiversity. The report can be viewed here.

Councillor Ian Cochrane – South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment said: "I am delighted that the Council is reinforcing our commitment towards biodiversity awareness and the natural economy of South Ayrshire. 

"These are vital assets in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, responding to climate change, ending biodiversity loss and creating new, green employment opportunities for the future."
