Previous Action

A previous petition (PE783) was submitted on the same subject in 2004 by Mr James Reynolds after a poll in the Scotsman newspaper voted the Golden Eagle the country’s most loved bird.
The petition was referred to the Enterprise and Culture Committee, which was unable to identify a formal process to create national symbols for Scotland. No further action was taken or a conclusion reached prior to the 2007 election.
The golden Eagle has been included in Scottish Natural Heritage’s Big 5 for the Year of Natural Scotland, demonstrating the cultural importance of this well-loved species. This will also provide some measure of public support.

RSPB has been participating in Scottish Environment LINK’s Species Champions programme with Rhoda Grant being the Species Champion for the Golden Eagle.
