Chief Executive of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, Jonny Hughes, said: “The Scottish Wildlife Trust is delighted to welcome Gordon Buchanan as an ambassador during our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
“Gordon is a leading light in the wildlife world. He has captured some spectacular wildlife events during his career and his work has inspired millions to learn more about the wonders of nature.
“We are thrilled that Gordon will be joining forces with Scottish Wildlife Trust members and supporters in our mission to protect Scotland’s amazing wildlife for the future.”
Gordon Buchanan said: “I have spent my career inspiring people about the natural world and wildlife, so this role seems like a perfect fit, as it was Scotland’s wildlife that first inspired me when I was growing up on Mull.
