Our Nature Champions
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.”
Emma Harper, MSP for South Scotland- championing the natterjack toad and ponds and small lochs:
“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.“
Fulton MacGregor, MSP for Coatbridge and Chryston- championing the great crested newt:
Fulton is committed to supporting agri-environment strategies to create and restore suitable ponds and habitats.
He will work for improved planning processes to take better account of great crested newt presence at the early stages.
He will also ensure that the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy is fully upheld.
Daniel Johnson, Labour & Co-op MSP for Edinburgh Southern and Shadow Finance Secretary- championing the slow-worm.
Daniel Johnson was first elected in 2016 to represent Edinburgh Southern in the Scottish Parliament. He currently serves as Scottish Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Business and Fair Work and has previously served as Shadow Justice Secretary and Shadow Education Minister. He was formerly a member of the Criminal Justice Committee and is currently the Deputy Convenor of the Finance and Public Administration Committee. Daniel is a member of several Cross-Party Groups in the Scottish Parliament, including Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Autism, Independent Convenience Stores, Outdoor Education, and the USA. His political interests include: enterprise, skills, justice, ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders. In October 2017, Daniel was the first MSP to publicly reveal his diagnosis with ADHD.
