Scotland’s nature needs urgent protection after Brexit
One in nine species is at risk of extinction in Scotland. As we leave the EU, we risk losing crucial environmental safeguards to protect Scotland’s nature. The Scottish government’s Continuity Bill contains proposals for establishing a new environment watchdog but doesn’t allow the watchdog to take action on specific complaints. We need a watchdog with teeth – with the power and independence to enforce environmental protections in the way the EU has done – and which allows people to challenge decisions affecting their environment, on land and at sea.
