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.

National Species Re-introduction Forum

The Trust is a member of the National Species Re-introduction Forum and has considerable practical experience in species conservation projects, including red squirrels and beavers. We support the need for best practice in conservation translocations as set out in the Scottish Code for Conservation Translocations.

Reintroductions and other types of translocations can help conserve individual animals and plants and make up for declines caused by habitat loss, climate change, and other land-use and development impacts on the environment. The Forum membership is wide ranging and includes representatives from conservation organisations, government departments, landowners and estates, and the farming, forestry, fishing, and game-keeping sectors.
