About Scottish Wildlife Trust
The Scottish Wildlife Trust has worked for over half a century in pursuit of its vision of creating healthy, resilient ecosystems across Scotland’s land and seas. We campaign for wildlife through our policy and advocacy work, demonstrate leading best practice through conservation projects and inspire people to take positive action through our education and engagement activities.
We manage a network of around 116 wildlife reserves across Scotland which we our staff work tirelessly to protect year-round. These reserves are places where we want wildlife to thrive, and where everyone can truly connect with nature.
From native species and landscape projects, to policy work, managing wildlife reserves, education programmes and campaigning for nature, we protect Scotland’s wildlife for the future.
From major landscape-scale restoration projects in the Highlands, to reintroducing beavers back to Scotland for the first time in 400 years, our projects range widely in size, scope and timescale.
Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels works with local communities to ensure red squirrels will always be a part of Scotland’s special native wildlife. Together with partners, landowners and a network of local groups and volunteers, we are focused on the areas where red squirrels are most under threat.
Our efforts are making a difference — in many places, red squirrels are already making a comeback. However, there is still a lot of work to do. There are many ways for you to get involved with helping to save Scotland’s red squirrels, from reporting a squirrel sighting to volunteering. With your help, we can continue to protect them.
2021 will be a crucial year for our natural world: the year when the UK will host the UN Climate Change conference (COP26) and the year that the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration begins. To mark this turning point for wildlife, we have established the Scottish Wildlife Trust Resilience Fund. By ensuring climate resilience on and around our reserves, helping people connect with nature and by promoting nature-based solutions, together we can protect and prepare our natural world for the future.
