37 environmental charities from across Scotland have come together to ‘Fight for Scotland’s Nature’ and gather support for a Scottish Environment Act.
EU protections have played an overwhelmingly positive role in protecting and enhancing our natural environment by setting clear objectives for legislation, providing funding mechanisms and a variety of routes to ensure implementation.
The prospect of Brexit threatens to unravel this set of critical environmental protections at a time when 1 in 11 species in Scotland is at risk of extinction.
We cannot afford to be left behind EU and global partners. This is why we need a Scottish Environment Act to set clear ambitions for our own environmental policy and set us in a clear trajectory towards a more sustainable future. This is all the more important as we approach 2020, a year critical for the culmination of global efforts to halt biodiversity loss.
