Build on ecological connectivity to deliver for people and places

National parks offer on important solution to help tackle the climate and biodiversity crises and can also help to empower local communities. Other solutions also exist that can complement the protections offered by national park status. Our proposal is to link both lowland and highland areas of Perthshire which could bridge the gap, ultimately continuously, between the two existing national parks, and also extending east towards the Angus glens.

Why the contribution is important

Perthshire Nature Connections Partnership (( is working with and learning from the two existing national parks, wider partnership members, landowners and others to develop and implement a series of projects that creates corridors and connections between ecosystems, biodiversity and communities, potentially offering a more flexible arrangement that delivers similar outcomes without formal park status.

    This partnership sounds very interesting and, as noted, potentially offers a more flexible arrangement that delivers similar outcomes without formal national park status (and without the associated set up and ongoing cost). This could be considered across other parts of Scotland.
