Recent calls by conservation charities such as John Muir Trust to save wild land and endangered species have resulted in a debate being held in the Scottish Parliament and which is scheduled to take place at 5.00 pm on Wednesday 6th March.
The debate will centre on Motion (S4M – 05602 Endangered Species and Wild Land Conservation) lodged by Murdo Fraser MSP and which enjoys cross party support in this Year of Natural Scotland. This is seen as significant for John Muir Trust's Wild Land Campaign objective to secure a new designation for Scotland's wild land.
Those interested in the topic can influence the debate by getting in touch with your MSP prior to the debate. In addition, or alternatively, members of the public can listen to the debate from the Scottish Parliament public gallery. Tickets should be booked through the Scottish Parliament Visitor Services.
