Our achievements

In April 1964, Sir Charles Connell and a small group of dedicated wildlife enthusiasts came together in Edinburgh to form the Scottish Wildlife Trust. More than 50 years on and the Trust they built has grown into a Scotland-wide organisation with well over 38,000 members, 1,000 volunteers and 120 wildlife reserves. From successfully delivering restoration works on 10 peatland sites to welcoming a record number of pink-footed geese to our Montrose Basin Wildlife Reserve, here are just a few highlights from April 2014 to 2015. For more detail, download a copy of our Annual Report 2015.
