Nature’s recovery is crucial to Scotland's recovery - RSPB

Leading environmental charities set out 11 transformative actions vital for the recovery of Scotland’s nature and building a fairer future for all

RSPB Scotland, the Scottish Wildlife Trust and WWF Scotland have today launched a major new report which sets out 11 transformative actions for nature’s recovery in Scotland. The report has been supported by 22 other environmental charities and organisations.

Several of the #11Actions in the Nature Recovery Plan could be prioritised as part of Scotland’s green recovery from Covid-19, creating nature-based jobs for the long-term, contributing to local economies and delivering many other benefits to people, including for health and wellbeing.
