CONSERVATION AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The Scottish Rural Awards takes a realistic view of what conservation means, and what can be, and is being, achieved at present. Scotland’s diverse landscape is home to a multitude of resources, and it has never been more crucial to ensure that these are safeguarded in a sustainable manner for the future.
