Despite its beauty and drama, Scotland has become a nature-depleted nation. Just 3% of its natural woodlands remain and many species that were once prolific now teeter on the edge; others have been hunted to extinction. And today, climate breakdown is knocking on Scotland’s door.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Our vision is of a vast network of rewilded land and water across Scotland, where wildlife flourishes and people thrive.

 

WHAT WE DO

SCOTLAND: The Big Picture works to drive the recovery of nature across Scotland through rewilding, in response to the growing climate and biodiversity crises.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

WILD YOUR SPACE

WILD YOUR SPACE

It’s easy to imagine rewilding at a landscape scale but this is a journey that offers space for everyone. Throughout Scotland, passionate individuals and communities are working together to create more space for bats, bees and butterflies. Parks, gardens and public spaces can all make a valuable contribution to a landscape rich in nature.

Most people don’t realise that Scotland has become a nature-depleted nation. Talk to family, friends and work colleagues about the potential of a rewilded Scotland for nature, climate and people. Encourage them to join our Big Picture community. Write to your MSP asking them to declare Scotland as the world’s first Rewilding Nation. And, don’t forget to follow us on social media and like/share our posts. 

Rewilding is as much a change in mindset as it is a physical change to the land or sea, so it’s good to talk.

There are many ways to invest in rewilding. You can support businesses such as local farms that are working to restore wildlife, or nature tourism operators who donate part of their revenues to rewilding.  And of course, you can help organisations like SCOTLAND: The Big Picture create a vast network of rewilded land and sea.
