Upcoming artists and graphic designers were asked to ‘picture’ a sustainable Scotland, and show Members of the Scottish Parliament what is needed to give Scotland a sustainable future at Scottish Environment week, a parliamentary event run by Scottish Environment LINK earlier this year. Four of these fantastic images focused on environmental challenges in the marine environment. To celebrate World Ocean’s Day we wanted to share these brilliant pieces of work.
Scotland’s seas are home to some truly incredible species and habitats. We want to keep it that way. Find out why our seas need greater protection and how that can be achieved.
The life in our seas is fundamentally interconnected by water and the ecosystem processes. Marine protection is meaningless if planning does not account for the fundamental linkages between species and habitats in our seas.
Decades of unsustainable activity has resulted in serious damage to areas of Scotland’s seas. These areas are now in desperate need of recovery. Find out the true state of Scotland’s seas and why we need to restore them to a condition we can all be proud of.
