Protect Nature

of our wildlife species have become endangered since 1970.

of man-made carbon emissions are absorbed by natural ecosystems; we must protect them.
As insect populations decline due to pesticide use, so too does the rest of the food web; leading to the 6th mass extinction.

Wellbeing for people and nature.

Historically, human wellbeing has been considered separate from environmental justice. Recent protests for clean water, clean air and a habitable planet show us that these are two sides of the same coin. “Progress” and “wealth” can no longer be generated at the expense of people and nature. So, let’s allow all people and nature to flourish.

Kirriemuir is home to some wonderful wildlife. You might see a red squirrel scamper over the fence on the walk to school, or hear some swifts screaming through the town on a summer evening. It’s easy to think these animals, wildflowers and landscapes, will always be there. Yet, our everyday decisions can make it harder for nature to thrive.

We encourage you to speak up for nature. To cherish and support what we have.

Aim to protect nature.
