JOIN THE FIGHT FOR SCOTLAND’S NATURE
1 in 11 species in Scotland is at risk of extinction and many others are declining. We desperately need a new global deal for nature and people – and it starts at home. By restoring nature in Scotland, we can show global leadership. As we prepare to leave the EU, now is a pivotal moment to give our nature a voice.
Scotland’s nature is under threat
From bumblebees and wildcats to dolphins and seabirds, Scotland’s nature is in trouble.
Climate change, pollution and loss of habitat are contributing to this decline. And now leaving the EU means we risk losing environmental protections that Scottish wildlife and landscapes depend on.
But we still have an opportunity to secure better protection for Scotland’s seas, land and wildlife. Join us in calling on the Scottish Government to get serious about protecting our environment.
What can we do?
The Scottish Government is now seeking views on the future of environmental protections in Scotland.
To protect our amazing wildlife, we need the Scottish Government to commit to a dedicated Scottish Environment Act that will:
- embed much needed EU environmental law principles in Scots law
- set up an independent watchdog to enforce environmental protections
- set clear targets for environmental protection alongside adequate financial resources.
