Human activity is unequivocally responsible for the climate emergency – sea levels will continue to rise, our natural landscapes will deteriorate and our wildlife will have to adapt to more variable climates. The impacts – and opportunities – presented by both climate change and our battle to adapt are undoubtedly the greatest stories of our time.
Scotland is a country of outstanding natural beauty, wonderful wild places and inspirational people. A nature steeped in stories inspired by these breath-taking landscapes – from the folk tales of the Highlands to more contemporary narratives – its history is one of mystery and legend, of science and innovation and of overcoming and adapting in the face of adversity.
With a heartfelt plea to protect our natural heritage, in Wild Scotland we showcase stories of how the remarkable people, flora and fauna of Scotland are facing important choices, adapting to our changing world in the face of the climate emergency and playing their part in trying to ensure a successful and sustainable future for us all.
