Scottish Natural Heritage Rebrands as NatureScot

Scottish Natural Heritage has rebranded to become NatureScot as of today.

The organisation has made the change to position itself at the forefront of the Scottish Government’s biodiversity policy and ensure that the focus is on ‘nature’.

NatureScot’s website lists the organisation purpose as “NatureScot believes that a nature-rich future, where everyone is involved, will make us all happier, healthier, wealthier and more equal. That means that as Scotland recovers from Covid-19, our natural world will be at the heart of the nation’s well-being.  NatureScot’s response will focus on connecting people and nature, and tackling biodiversity loss and the climate emergency with large and small scale nature-based solutions. Working in partnership, these solutions must be bold, innovative, for everyone, [and] built on sound science…”

The rebrand was announced last year but was postponed due to Covid-19.
