What we do
Scotland is amazing for wildlife. The variety of species and habitats is outstanding – from golden eagles to otters, red squirrels to wintering geese and huge seabird colonies – all set among rugged mountains, moorland, ancient Caledonian pine forests and miles of coastline. Our work in Scotland helps protect them all.

Saving seabirds on the Shiant Isles
The Shiants are a cluster of tiny Hebridean islands. Hundreds of thousands of seabirds gather here to breed each year. Introduced, non-native black rats feed on the seabirds and their chicks. To protect the existing colony and to encourage Manx shearwaters and storm petrels to breed, we need to take urgent action.

Written submission to the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee on implementation of RPP2 and delivery of Scotland’s climate change targets
In order to achieve Climate Change Act targets, RPP2 proposals must be made into policies and implemented. We want to see peatland restoration activity happening in 2014 and 2015 to ensure existing commitments are met and promised funding is spent. Government must work to introduce compulsory nitrogen efficiency measures to all farmers at the earliest opportunity. Meeting the 2020 100% renewable electricity target must be done in harmony with the environment.
