Under the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004, all public bodies in Scotland are required to further the conservation of biodiversity when carrying out their responsibilities. The Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011, further requires public bodies in Scotland to provide a publicly available report, every three years, on the actions which they have taken to meet this biodiversity duty.

This report below sets out how West Dunbartonshire Council  has delivered biodiversity conservation across a range of functions. The format used is based on a suggested reporting template produced by Scottish Natural Heritage.
