Forestry Commission Scotland
Our mission is to protect and expand Scotland's forests and woodlands and increase their value to society and the environment.
Hands up if you know what a Scottish wildcat is? Most of us know a fair bit about the problems facing polar bears, gorillas and tigers. But what about our very own native cat– Britain’s own ‘Highland Tiger’? Now there’s an animal in serious trouble.
Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime in Scotland
Wildlife crime can involve anything from poisoning a golden eagle to cracking open freshwater pearl mussels. Rare species are put at risk, more familiar ones, like the badger or deer, suffer cruel torture and death.
Plantlife is a charity working to protect Britain’s wild flowers and plants, fungi and lichens in the habitats in which they are found.
Save Scottish Seas
We all want our seas to be healthy and productive, a place where wildlife thrives and which can provide a sustainable future for our fragile coastal communities. But Scotland’s seas have been over-exploited and under-protected for decades. We desperately need to help them recover.
