The Clyde River Foundation was founded in 1999 with the aim of improving understanding of all aspects of river management, and in particular to provide a permanent, professional fisheries science presence in the catchment. The Foundation employs four full-time scientists and is based in the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine at the University of Glasgow. Our staff are honorary members of the Institute.

Report Wildlife crime

Wildlife Crime is any act that is made illegal in Scotland under legislation with regard to certain birds, animals and plants including their habitats, both on land and at sea.

It includes the illegal disturbance, destruction, theft and sale of animals and plants both in the countryside and urban areas, and includes the destruction of and damage to protected habitats. Wildlife Crime poses significant harm to the species targeted by the criminals, as well as the communities who rely on wildlife for employment and tourism.

As a non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government, our role is to make sure that the environment and human health are protected, to ensure that Scotlands natural resources and services are used as sustainability as possible and contribute to sustainable economic growth.
