The Nature of Scotland Awards 2022 open for entries

Brought to you by RSPB Scotland and co-sponsored by NatureScot, be part of this year’s prestigious awards programme! Free to enter, we are seeking applications and nominations by Monday 30 May in 10 award categories from business, public sector organisations, research institutions, community groups and individuals who have been active in nature conservation across Scotland since March 2019.  

We are proud to announce a new category the Citizen Science Award which celebrates volunteers and their contribution to conservation science in Scotland. These projects are crucial to building our understanding of the natural world.  You don’t need a degree in science or years of training to increase the world’s knowledge about wildlife – sometimes you just need a little time and a passion for nature.  

Learn more about all the award categories, enter your own project or nominate your conservation heroes today.  

We look forward to receiving your entries! For updates on the awards and information on our previous winners please follow  @NatureofScot on Twitter. 


NatureScot is Scotland’s nature agency with 30 years’ experience advising the Scottish Government. They work to enhance our natural environment and inspire the people of Scotland to care more about it.

They will be indispensable to Scotland’s ‘green recovery’ from Covid-19, stimulating a revival that secures resilience through a nature-rich future for Scotland and an effective response to the climate emergency. This means that by 2030, Scotland will be recognised as a world leader in looking after and enhancing nature.
