Froglife is a national wildlife charity committed to the conservation of amphibians and reptiles – frogs, toads, newts, snakes and lizards – and saving the habitats they depend on.
The Come Forth for Wildlife project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) and a range of co-funders, is now in it’s second year!
Come Forth for Wildlife is working throughout the Forth Valley (Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire) to develop connections to conserve and enhance the unique heritage the area offers. This is being achieved by creating inter-connected habitats for amphibians, reptiles and other wildlife. The project enables all sectors of the community to develop connections with the natural heritage of the Forth Valley region through the activities we are delivering and have planned. For more information on this project and activities please visit our website: https://www.froglife.org/what-we-do/education/come-forth-for-wildlife/

Trees for Life
The Trees for Life vision is of a revitalised wild forest in the Scottish Highlands, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive
The Trees for Life mission is to rewild the Scottish Highlands by enabling the restoration of the globally unique Caledonian Forest which once covered much of Scotland. Integral to our success is the involvement of people
Scotland Big Picture
Despite its beauty and drama, Scotland has become a nature-depleted nation. Many species that were once prolific now teeter on the edge; others have been hunted to extinction. Centuries of ecological decline have led to the complex living systems upon which we all depend to falter and fail.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Rewilding seeks to return abundance and diversity of life to Scotland’s land and seas, so that wildlife flourishes and people thrive. SCOTLAND: The Big Picture works in a spirit of collaboration with a diverse range of people to make rewilding happen, at many different levels, across Scotland.
It’s time to rewrite nature’s story.
Forth Environment Link
Forth Environment Link (FEL) is a Scottish environmental charity, based in the Forth Valley, leading the way on connecting people and place on actions which make a positive response to the Climate Emergency. We support more day to day journeys on foot or by bike; we encourage more local food to be grown and eaten in our communities; and we help increase the lifespan of our everyday items.
The Climate Collage is a French nonprofit organization funded in December 2018 whose aim is to raise public awareness about climate change.

Stitches for Survival
Stitches For Survival is a group of knitters, crocheters, stitchers and crafters from across the UK and beyond with a heart-felt message to the COP26 climate talks to be held in Glasgow 1–12 November 2021.
It is time to put the Earth — the basis for our very survival — and not money, centre stage in political decisions. This is the time to take bold and binding action to stop the devastating climate havoc and ecological breakdown that is evident across the world.
This last year has shown how radically our lives can change overnight when the political will is there and people take responsibility. It is time to act with the same urgency on the climate and ecological crisis!
We are knitting, crocheting, stitching and crafting 1.5 miles of climate messages for the negotiators to urge them to take bold and binding action together. Mass-craftivism to put the Earth centre-stage at COP26!
The length of the scarf represents the 1.5°C target in the Paris Agreement.
SOS-UK are a student-led education charity focusing on sustainability. We work closely with the National Union of Students (NUS), having been set up by them in 2019 in response to the climate and ecological crisis. SOS-UK has 3 core workstreams: getting more students leading on sustainability; repurposing the education system around the climate and ecological crisis; and making sustainability more inclusive.
