Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) are government bodies responsible to Scottish Government Ministers and, through them, to the Scottish Parliament. The task of SNH is to secure the conservation and enhancement of Scotland’s natural heritage – the wildlife, habitats and landscapes which have evolved through the long partnership between people and nature. SEPA is Scotland’s environmental regulator and adviser, and has a key role in controlling pollution, and working with others to protect and improve our environment. SNH and SEPA manage a vigorous Research Programme. As part of developing their research work linked to operational priorities, they will fund up to three PhD studentships during 2012.
