Welcome to The Scottish Gamekeepers Association’s Year of Employment, #YofE2023
The United Nations proclaimed May 22 as International Day for Biodiversity. Key drivers of biodiversity
loss include climate change, pollution and invasive non-native species. The local knowledge, skills and
competence of members of the Scottish Gamekeepers Association have never been so relevant as Scotland
strives to halt biodiversity loss by 2030 and meet climate change targets by 2045.
