LINK’s Species Champion initiative has been short-listed for the RSPB Scotland Nature of Scotland Awards under the category of ‘Innovation Award’. We’re also delighted to hear that four of our Species Champion MSPs have also been short-listed for Politician of the Year Award: Claire Baker MSP, Claudia Beamish MSP, Mary Scanlon MSP and Willie Rennie MSP. The winners will be announced at the award ceremony at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh on 20th November 2014. Fingers-crossed for everyone!
LINK’s Species Champion initiative which asks MSPs to lend their political support to the protection of Scotland’s threatened wildlife now has 69 MSPs championing 87 unique species.
