Scotland is undoubtedly a spectacular country but is an ecological shadow of its former self. Its turbulent past has shaped its wild places like few other countries and a legacy of degraded land persists, a land that is devoid of the rich vegetation and wildlife that given the chance, could once again flourish.
It wasn’t so long ago that vibrant forest stretched its fingers across much of the Highlands. Beavers and cranes found sanctuary in extensive wetlands; lynx, wolf and wild boar stalked forest glades. That ecological jigsaw may never be fully recreated but a wilder, richer and more resilient landscape can return.
Big Picture are a small team of media professionals – photographers, filmmakers, writers and designers – working in Scotland and producing high-impact visual communications, which fuse ecological science with inspiring storytelling. Working in partnership with a wide range of organisations and using many different media platforms, they want to tell a passionate, contagious story that compels people to champion the case for a wilder Scotland full of life.
