Anne McCall, Director of RSPB Scotland said: “It is heartening to hear how people, projects and organisations across Scotland are working determinedly to save nature from the many threats it faces. These awards are a celebration of amazing achievements. Help us recognise our conservation champions by submitting an application or nomination today.”
Scottish Natural Heritage is the awards co-sponsor this year. Francesca Oswoska, the Chief Executive, will sit on the panel of judges alongside Anne McCall, who will chair the judging panel, Euan McIlwraith, Susan Davis, CEO of the Scottish Seabird Centre, and a representative from the Scottish Council for Development and Industry.
Francesca Osowska said: “SNH is delighted to again co-sponsor the Nature of Scotland Awards, an event which is all about celebrating the unsung heroes working hard right across Scotland to protect our precious natural environment.
This year we are also pleased to be sponsoring the business award in recognition of the crucial role that businesses play in safeguarding our natural capital for the future.
I'm looking forward to discovering this year's outstanding nature champions and I have no doubt we will all be inspired by all that they are doing helping more people enjoy and benefit from nature.”
