Our Nature Champions
The Nature Champions initiative encourages Members of the Scottish Parliament to champion threatened and iconic species and habitats, raising awareness and promoting action to protect and restore Scotland’s environment. You can find out more here.
Martin Whitfield, MSP for South Scotland- championing the adder:“Having always taken a keen interest in nature and wildlife, I’m delighted to become a Nature Champion for Scotland’s adders. They’re well known as the UK’s only venomous snake, but it’s perhaps less well known that their numbers have been in serious decline over recent years. I’m pleased to make this commitment to champion adders and hopefully contribute to the protection of this special creature in Scotland.”
“I look forward to continue to promote the natterjack toad as a Nature Champion and in May I highlighted this special, rare species on Endangered Species Day by raising a motion in parliament to garner political support for its protection. I am proud to represent the South Scotland region which is home to the natterjack toad – Dumfries & Galloway – the only place in Scotland where you will find this species.”
