Angus North and Mearns MSP, Nigel Don, showed his support for the Scottish Wildlife Trust at an event on October 2.
The charity was holding a special exhibition in Parliament to mark 50 years of working to protect wildlife in Scotland.
Much of the group’s work involves providing healthy, resilient ecosystems to support native species in order to guard habitats from further loss, restore degrading habitats, promote large scale wildlife rich landscapes and to inspire and engage people in wildlife conservation.
With a rural constituency, Mr Don is aware of the hard work that the Scottish Wildlife Trust put into guarding Scottish wildlife.
The work done by the trust can be seen across the MSP’s own constituency - Angus North and Mearns.
Earlier in the year, the Mr Don visited the Montrose Basin Visitor centre which was opened in 1995 and works all year round to educate visitors on wildlife conservation.
Mr Don said: “The Scottish Wildlife Trust centre at the Montrose Basin is a wonderful asset for the whole area; it attracts visitors from across the world.
“It is also a valuable resource for our local schools and introduces youngsters to a wide range of wild creatures.
“I am really grateful to the Scottish Wildlife Trust for the effort they put into maintaining this and to the many volunteers who keep it open for us.”
