RSPB Scotland's Nature of Scotland awards, which recognise the best of Scottish nature conservation, is on the hunt for entries
Nominations are open for the Nature of Scotland Awards 2015.
Now in their fourth year, the awards, run by RSPB, recognise the best of Scottish nature conservation and celebrate innovation, excellence and outstanding achievement.
This year, entries are welcomed for eight awards, including the new category of Nature Tourism.
Finalists will be announced at an evening reception in the Garden Lobby of the Scottish Parliament in September with the winners announced on 19 November at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh.
Sarah McDowell, RSPB Scotland major events manager, said: “The judges were overwhelmed by the volume and high calibre of last year’s nominations!
“Scotland is renowned worldwide for its beautiful landscapes and abundant wildlife, which we must work hard to sustain and conserve.
“If you know of an organisation, group or individual who has made a special contribution to protecting Scotland’s natural heritage and wildlife, then we want to hear from you!”
