Fight for Scotland’s Nature

Scotland needs strong environmental legislation beyond Brexit. With crucial environmental protections in jeopardy, we need a Scottish Environment Act to protect and restore Scotland’s nature.

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. Brexit threatens to unravel this set of critical environmental protections at a time when 1 in 9 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 in 2020, a year critical for the culmination of global efforts to halt biodiversity loss. Our campaign works with members and government to ensure that our environment is protected and able to support the kind of Scotland we all want to live in.
