Nature of Scotland Awards

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 Scottish Natural Heritage. Judging is under way and we are looking forward to announcing the awards shortlist on Wednesday 2 September.

The Nature of Scotland Awards 2020

Brought to you by RSPB Scotland and co-sponsored by Scottish Natural Heritage, learn more about this year’s nine award categories including the Coasts and Waters Award and the Species Champion Award.

New for 2020 we will be celebrating sustainable foresters through the Forest and Woodland Award and also those taking definitive steps to both saving nature and mitigating or adapting to climate change through the Nature and Climate Action Award.

With the difficult process of judging underway, we look forward to announcing this year’s shortlist on Wednesday 2 September. Subject to Government guidance, Scotland’s conservation heroes will then be celebrated through a prestigious Presentation Dinner on Wednesday 25 November at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

Please follow the project’s Twitter page for updates on the awards programme.
