Scotland has the potential to be a world leader in biodiversity recovery, but as things stand, our ecosystems are degraded, and an alarming number of our species populations are in decline. The new Scottish Biodiversity Strategy offers the opportunity to develop and implement targeted action to turn this around and put Scotland on the path to nature recovery. Scotland’s eNGOs, with our expertise, land holdings and strong links to communities, will be an integral part of delivering this recovery. This paper sets out the key elements which LINK believes are essential for success. We look forward to working openly and collaboratively with the Scottish Government to develop and deliver a truly world-leading biodiversity strategy.
