At the AGM in 2008, the proposal of an e-petition was debated, together with a possible wording. With the approval of the membership, Craig Macadam took the petition forward.
Wording of e-petition
"Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to
establish integrated local and national structures for collecting, analysing
and sharing biological data to inform decision making processes to benefit biodiversity."
See the text of the e-petition in PE1229
After receiving 718 "signatures" the petition was discussed by the Petitions Committee and
following several meetings between the Committee and representatives of BRISC, a set of recommendations
were put forward by the Science Group to the Scottish Parliament.
