With the difficult process of judging underway, we look forward to announcing this year’s finalists at our Shortlist Reception at the Scottish Parliament on 24 September.

Scotland’s conservation heroes will then be celebrated on 28 November at our Awards Ceremony at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. This prestigious event will be hosted by BBC Landward presenters and nature enthusiasts Dougie Vipond and Arlene Stuart.

NatureScot is Scotland's nature agency. We bring 30 years of experience, expertise and passion to our nation's most vital endeavour: to tackle the twin crises of nature's devastating decline and the climate emergency.

Working with partners, communities and businesses we're leading nationally to stop the dramatic decline in biodiversity, as a necessary first step towards substantial regeneration by 2045. By restoring biodiversity, nature will make an essential contribution to both hitting net zero carbon emissions targets and a thriving economy with people’s wellbeing at its heart.
