Nature funding switches to being year-round

FUNDING applications for “projects that aim to put Scotland’s land, rivers and seas back on the road to recovery” are now being accepted on a year-round basis, as opposed to periodically.

And says Scottish Government agency, NatureScot, here: “The Scottish Government’s £65 million Nature Restoration Fund has already awarded around £17.5 million to 125 projects across the country since it opened in July 2021. 

“Managed by NatureScot, the fund supports projects to take practical steps to tackle the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss and to restore Scotland’s natural environment.

“[And now], NatureScot is accepting ‘expressions of interest’ all year-round for projects that will restore species and habitats, protect our marine and coastal areas, and eradicate invasive, non-native species.”

Two funding types are available: between £25,000 and £250,000 and over £250,000.
