Rare species in trouble
It is also home to some of the most majestic wildlife in the world, internationally important colonies of breeding seabirds, 75% of the UK’s red squirrels and is the only place you can find the elusive Scottish wildcat.
In Scotland you will find the last remaining fragments of Caledonian pinewoods, vast stretches of native rainforests, the largest blanket bogs in Europe, rugged mountain habitats and over half the UK’s coastline, fringed with rich marine habitat.
Could you help?
Scotland’s nature is under threat.
The 2019 State of Nature report revealed that 49% of Scottish species have decreased.
The evidence from the last 50 years shows that significant and ongoing changes in the way land and sea is managed, and the ongoing effects of climate change are having the biggest impacts.
With your help RSPB Scotland has already restored seven square miles of blanket bog in the Flow Country, led a successful campaign to save the internationally protected Coul Links from damaging development and doubled the number of corn buntings in East Scotland since 2001.
But there is so much more to do.
