£10 Million Nature Fund Opens For Scotland

Scottish Government has launched a £10 million fund for projects that restore nature, safeguard wildlife and tackle the causes of biodiversity loss and climate change.

The Nature Restoration Fund will be split between local authorities, to develop new or existing projects to address the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change and promote the health and wellbeing of local communities and reduce inequalities; a small project competitive fund of £1 million to be distributed by NatureScot; and established nature restoration projects across Scotland.

The competitive element of the Nature Restoration Fund is now open for applications, with a closing date of 27 July 2021. Please see the NatureScot website for application details.
