The State of Nature Scotland 2019 report shows from 1994 to 2016, 49% of Scottish species have decreased and 28% have increased in abundance. Following on from the State of Nature reports in 2013 and 2016, leading professionals from more than 70 wildlife organisations have for the first time joined with Government agencies to present the clearest picture to date of the status of species across the land and sea. Scottish Natural Heritage is one of the State of Nature 2019 partners. Our staff gathered data used in both the Scottish and UK reports, and helped to interpret what was found, enabling us collectively to make the 2019 report an agreed evidence base for the status of biodiversity.
