The Peatlands Partnership includes Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry Commission (Scotland), The Highland Council, RSPB Scotland, Plantlife International, the Environmental Research Institute (University of the Highlands and Islands), Highland Third Sector Interface, the Flow Country Rivers Trust, Northern Deer Management Group and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. It is chaired by Professor Stuart Gibb, Vice-Principal of UHI and Director of the ERI.
The Peatlands Partnership was formed at the end of 2006 following the completion of the EU LIFE funded Peatlands Project and aims to develop and build on that project. The Partnership comprises 'core' organisations, together with other interested organisations and individuals, who will carry out and support the objectives set out in the Management Strategy document, 'The Peatlands of Caithness and Sutherland'.
The current activities of the Partnership include delivering the Flows to the Future project, revision of the Peatlands Management Strategy and as a forum for taking forward the possible listing of the Flow Country as a World Heritage Site. For details of these projects and the peatland related work of the partners, see the eNewsletters below.
