Monday 24th August comments: It’s been an exciting day for all concerned with SNH and the Isle of May as the organisation has had a rebrand as we have become NatureScot, Scotland’s Nature Agency.
It’s a new short and snappy title but does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a modern up-to-date rebrand that has been welcomed by many and marks the next step on the remarkable organisation’s journey. NatureScot is Scotlands nature agency and we will work to improve the natural environment in Scotland and inspire everyone to care more about it. It will mean that all nature in Scotland; the key habitats, landscapes, all green space and native species are maintained, enhanced and will help bring benefits to people.
Scottish Natural Heritage chief executive Francesca Osowska said: ‘Nature is at the heart of what we do, and as NatureScot we will continue to work with partners to help deliver the transformational change needed to bring a nature-rich future for Scotland. We know the importance of nature to the wellbeing of Scotland’s people and places, and as an enabler of sustainable and inclusive growth.
‘As NatureScot we will be more recognisable to the general public as the organisation at the heart of helping to deliver the transformational change needed to ensure a nature rich future for Scotland, which is part of Scotland’s commitment to tackling climate change.
‘People know that climate change is a big issue but not as many know that nature – and biodiversity loss – is also a global and generational threat to human well-being. But it’s not just about conservation – enriching our nature is also part of the solution to the climate emergency too. We want everyone to know that they can make a difference by caring about our natural world.’ NatureScot is Scotland’s nature agency. They work to improve our natural environment in Scotland and inspire everyone to care more about it.
