The Scottish Wildlife Trust campaigns for fundamental and lasting improvements for wildlife across Scotland.

We believe long-term change can only be achieved by encouraging others to live and work sustainably, and the Trust works closely with environmental organisations both in Scotland and across the UK to achieve this. We also campaign at a Scottish Executive and Scottish Parliament level to improve current legislation and funding.

Our advocacy work is key to achieving the goals set out in the Trust’s Strategy 2030. By encouraging urgency and leadership from Scotland’s decision makers, we will contribute towards Scotland being recognised internationally for the part it has played in the UN’s Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. We will advocate for legislation that protects and restores ecosystems, improves our wellbeing and contributes to the world’s Sustainable Development Goals. And we will campaign for the critical role that nature can play in addressing the climate crisis and other challenges faced by society.

Nature is our life support system and can help solve many of the issues we face as a society. Find out how helping nature can ultimately help us.
