The Inner Tay Estuary is an area of international importance for its wildlife, specifically for the numbers of pink footed and greylag geese that over winter on the site. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Local Nature Reserve, and lies within the Firth of Tay and Eden Estuary Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Special Protection Area (SPA). The Local Nature Reserve covers an area of mud flats around the Invergowrie and Kingoodie Bay which is of vital importance to the resident and migratory wildlife.
