As a knowledge and evidence based organisation the work of the Trust is supported by the Conservation Committee.
The Committee advises and reports to the Trust’s Council on any appropriate matter relating to the conservation of our natural heritage.
The Convener of the Committee is a member of the Trust’s Council and other members are selected through an open recruitment process. Committee members should generally be members of the Trust.
Specifically the Committee advises on conservation issues of strategic importance to the Trust and on its conservation priorities, policies and advocacy programmes. The Committee also support the Trust’s wildlife reserve acquisition, disposal and management policy and practice, and monitors and advises staff on the content of responses to external consultations.
