The Nature of Scotland Awards recognise the very best in Scottish nature conservation.

Celebrating the inspirational people, projects, groups and organisations working hard to protect Scotland’s precious natural heritage, entries are now closed for the ninth annual Nature of Scotland Awards co-sponsored by NatureScot. Judging is underway and we are looking forward to announcing the awards shortlist in early September.

The Nature of Scotland Awards 2021

Brought to you by RSPB Scotland and co-sponsored by NatureScot, learn more about this year’s nine award categories including the Nature and Climate Action Award and Forest and Woodland Award.

New for 2021 the Health and Wellbeing Award will celebrate the positive relationship between nature and wellbeing and celebrates initiatives that actively encourage people to engage with nature to support their mental and/or physical health.

With the difficult process of judging underway, we look forward to announcing this year’s shortlist in early September. Subject to Scottish Government guidance, our finalists will then be celebrated at our prestigious Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 17 November at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
