Scottish Environment LINK are celebrating ten years of the Nature Champions initiative with an exhibition at the Scottish Parliament!
The Nature Champions initiative exists to encourage MSPs to stand up for Scotland’s threatened and iconic species and habitats, through support from LINK member organisations. Many Nature Champions become a voice for their chosen species or habitat in the Scottish Parliament, and highlight them in debates, or through Parliamentary motions and questions.
Since its launch in 2013, the initiative has gone from strength to strength, with over 173 MSPs over the past decade becoming Nature Champions and asking hundreds of Parliamentary questions and motions in support of their species or habitats.
‘A Voice for Nature’ is an interactive exhibition highlighting some of the great work that has been achieved in these 10 years and will be on display outside the Scottish Parliament from the 28 August – 22 September.
Images and facts about Scottish species and habitats will be displayed alongside Nature Champions case studies and QR codes within the displays will link to short audio descriptions, using the voices of MSP Nature Champions to share information about species and habitats – thereby being a ‘voice for nature’ in the exhibition itself.
