 Species on the Edge is an ambitious programme for species recovery in Scotland, that aims to take action on over 37 declining and threatened species across Scotland’s coasts and islands.

The programme is led by NatureScot with members of the Rethink Nature partnership (Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, Bat Conservation Trust, Buglife, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, Plantlife, and RSPB Scotland). With funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we aim to deliver targets through nine species-specific project plans.
