The South Lanarkshire Biodiversity Partnership is taking a long-term approach to biodiversity conservation. With this in mind, the Biodiversity Strategy presents a series of long-term visions for the future of South Lanarkshire. These visions won't be realised overnight, in fact many of them may take centuries to come to fruition! However, it is important that we are all working towards a common goal, and accepting that repairing centuries of damage may take centuries itself.
The vision for the South Lanarkshire of the future is:
the future environment of South Lanarkshire will consist of a suite of robust ecosystems, which can adapt to climate changes, without the wide-scale breakdown of local ecosystem servcies, habitat fragmentation and species extinctions.
The Biodiversity Strategy also presents a long term vision for each of the Ecosystem and cross-cutting themes. They can be found in The Vision.
