What is the future for nature in our National Park? Despite its inspiring landscapes, historic places and protected status, the National Park is not immune to the global biodiversity crisis and nature is still in trouble here.
Future Nature is an ambitious programme to tackle the effects of the global nature crisis happening here and now in Scotland’s first National Park.
It aims to stop the decline and restore nature on a large scale.
Future Nature Route Map sets out how Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park can become an exemplar where people can understand, experience, and contribute towards a shared vision for restoring nature.
Our Vision text Our Vision
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is a resilient nature-rich National Park, where abundant wildlife and a healthy natural environment provide a wealth of benefits through an extensive, well-connected living network.
Our society, its wealth and its heritage are built largely upon the resources that our natural environment has provided us freely for hundreds of thousands of years. We now know that by the overexploitation of these resources humanity is devastating biodiversity at a global scale.
Even here, in the National Park, despite its inspiring landscapes, historic places and protected status, nature is in real trouble. Our duty as stewards of this special place has therefore changed in the face of this crisis.
