Let’s take a moment to celebrate Scotland’s water on #worldwaterday.  Water is essential for our health and prosperity. As well as being used for drinking, it’s used in industry, energy production and recreation. It also supports habitats that contain nationally and internationally important species. #water #scotland
Scotland’s forests are something to be celebrated on #internationaldayofforests as we all benefit from this valuable natural asset. Find out more on Scotland’s environment website.🌲 #trees #scotland

🌍 It was announced that Earth Overshoot Day will fall on the 1st August (Today) - the earliest it’s ever been. 🌍 Humans are using up the planet’s resources so quickly that the world’s population has used a year’s worth in just seven months. 🌍 Earth Overshoot Day marks the point at which we’ve used a year’s worth of resources. The day is calculated by the Global Footprint Network which compares how much carbon, crops, food, water, forests we’re consuming with the planet’s ability to regenerate and absorb the carbon emitted from the consumption. 🌍 This year’s date means that we would need 1.7 earths to maintain our current rate of consumption, and as the t-shirts all say ‘there is no Planet B’.

Found this tired wee bee in the garden. A drink of sugar water and within a few minutes it's off to fight another day of pollination #BeeRescue 🐝 #scotenvironment
