Working together to fight for Scotland’s nature
2020 is a critical year for the culmination of global efforts to halt biodiversity loss. To better protect our species and habitats from the threats they face,we have joined 34 other environmental charities from across Scotland to launch the Fight for Scotland’s Nature campaign.
A Scottish Environment Act
We believe that the best way to safeguard the future of Scotland’s nature is for the Scottish Government to pass a new Environment Act. It must have real ambition for our environmental policy, and set us onto a clear path towards a more sustainable future.
We need strong legislation to ensure our environment is healthy, thriving, and can keep providing for our wellbeing. We need to lock in existing EU environmental protections and make sure we don’t fall behind the EU and our global partners in the coming years.
Scotland’s nature is already in decline. If we don’t act now, that lost protection will mean more species and habitat loss. We need our environment to support our businesses, our communities and our lives. We must look after it properly.
Stand up for Scotland's nature – respond to the consultation
Right now, the Scottish Government is seeking views on the future of environmental protections in Scotland. We need to tell the Government that we need a Scottish Environment Act to protect and enhance our precious nature – now and for the future.
It’s important our voices are heard, this is a huge opportunity to make a difference and better protect Scotland’s natural world. The consultation closes on 11 May.
