Scottish Natural Heritage  
New SNH Officer Appointed For Caithness

Scottish Natural Heritage has appointed a new area officer for Caithness.

Working from the organisation's office in Golspie, Sally Ward will be developing links with land managers, other agencies, community groups, rangers and individuals across Caithness to help deliver the SNH remit of working with Scotland's people to care for the area's natural heritage.

Originally from Strathy and a former pupil of Strathy and Melvich primary schools and Thurso High school, Sally graduated from St Andrew's University in 1987 with a degree in Environmental Biology.

Since then she has worked on research projects at the Universities of Aberdeen, Stirling, Birmingham and St Andrew's, and completed a PhD in 1992 at Stirling University, on reproduction in birds.

Commenting on her new role with SNH, Sally said:  "I am very pleased to have the opportunity to come back to work in Caithness and hope to be able to put to practical use some of the knowledge and expertise I have gained through the various research projects I have worked on."

Welcoming her to the area, SNH's North Highland area manager, Lesley Cranna, added:  "We are very pleased to have Sally join our team.  Her combination of scientific knowledge and practical experience of research projects, as well as her local background, is sure to be a valuable asset to our work in Caithness."
