Wildlife education

See, learn about and enjoy wildlife

Education is at the heart of the Scottish Wildlife Trust's work, with our 25-year vision aiming to inspire and engage people in wildlife and conservation.

Our People and Wildlife team encourages people of all ages to see, learn about and enjoy wildlife both on our reserves and in the wider countryside, creating opportunities to get involved in a range of activities and events.

Meanwhile, our Experts for Nature project is looking to train the ecological surveyors of the future, addressing the current skills gap in field surveying in Scotland.

People and wildlife

Our People and Wildlife department focuses on four key areas of development:

  • Maintaining and developing a vibrant network of local groups working for wildlife
  • Fostering a strong, inclusive relationship with members and volunteers
  • Engaging communities with our reserves and conservation work
  • Inspiring families and young people to reconnect with nature
