Nature of Scotland Awards
Celebrating the inspirational people, projects and organisations working hard to protect Scotland’s precious natural heritage, entries are now closed for the eighth annual Nature of Scotland Awards co-sponsored by Scottish Natural Heritage. Judging is underway and we are looking forward to announcing the awards shortlist at an evening Parliamentary Reception on Wednesday 30 October sponsored by The Botanist.
The Nature of Scotland Awards 2019
Brought to you by RSPB Scotland and co-sponsored by Scottish Natural Heritage, learn more about this year’s nine award categories including the refreshed SNH Business Award and the return of the RSPB Species Champion Award. New for 2019 and in anticipation of the Year of Coasts and Waters 2020 we are celebrating the contribution of those that support nature living in Scottish marine and freshwater habitats and for the first time we are also marking outstanding achievement in the field of Conservation Science.
With the difficult process of judging underway, we look forward to meeting this year’s applicants at our reception held at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday 30 October where the 2019 shortlist will be revealed.
Scotland’s conservation heroes will then be celebrated on 4 December at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh. The prestigious Presentation Dinner will be hosted by award-winning wildlife cameraman and TV presenter Gordon Buchanan and BBC TV and radio presenter and wildlife expert Euan McIlwraith.
