The Helping it Happen Awards 2021: Anderson Strathern's Anne Chapman on the Conservation Award
In this blog, Anne Chapman covers the importance of conservation activities, and how these tie up with Anderson Strathern's own history and sponsorship of this years' Conservation Award at the Helping it Happen Awards 2021.
As John Muir said, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”.
Conservation activities are pivotal to safeguarding our wildlife, habitat, land and natural resources, yet it feels like sometimes we simply do not hear enough about what is being done to protect our environment and who is doing it. The more interest that we can create around why conservation is so vital, the more likely we are to encourage others not only to take part in such activities but to forge their own path toward a more sustainable way of living.
Safeguarding our wildlife and promoting biodiversity are essential tools in our ongoing climate change battle. Everything we can do now to care for and protect our natural environment will help protect Scotland’s fragile and beautiful natural resources for generations to come.
Anderson Strathern has a 270+ year history of providing legal advice to those involved in rural land and business, and through this we have seen first-hand the positive impact that pioneering new ways of caring for and conserving our natural habitats can create.
With all of that in mind, we are proud to continue to sponsor the Helping it Happen Conservation Award and we look forward not only to hearing the stories that are shared through the platform of these awards, but also using them to help raise awareness. The importance of caring for Scotland’s species and habitats and promoting all forms of conservation cannot be underestimated, and we believe it is our duty to do all that we can to ensure that our Scottish land is protected and cared for in the future.
