Have your say on tackling the nature emergency in Scotland

The Scottish Government is seeking views on a range of topics and proposals related to biodiversity and tackling the nature emergency in Scotland.

A public consultation has been launched to allow individuals and communities to have their say on the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy and the proposed National Environment Bill.

The Scottish Biodiversity Strategy sets out the Scottish Government’s vision to halt and reverse biodiversity loss. The first five-year Delivery Plan, which contains the actions to deliver this vision, is also part of this consultation.

The proposed Natural Environment Bill aims to provide a framework for establishing statutory nature targets to drive delivery and the transformational change we need. The second part of this consultation seeks your views on proposals related to tackling the nature emergency that will require legislation, specifically statutory targets for nature restoration and changes to National Parks.

If you want to have your say on these issues, you can find out more on the Scottish Government website.
