Helping nature help you

Action now can bring real benefits, inaction could mean huge costs.

We must act now, decisively and together to create the space for species, ecosystems and natural processes to adapt to climate change. The potential rewards are priceless, and inaction could be costlier that we might ever imagine.

Achieving this will be a real challenge. Success depends on us starting to take action now, all across Scotland.

SNH works with organisations across the country to help Scotland's nature and landscapes adapt to a changing climate. But we also provide guidance on how we can harness the potential of natural processes to help Scotland's people mount a more effective response to climate change.

The way we use our land, how we drain it (or let it flood), what we grow on it, where and what we build on it can have enormous impacts with regard to tackling climate change. To find out how, read about some of our success stories so far, and find out how you can help wildlife.
