What we do
Scotland is amazing for wildlife. The variety of species and habitats is outstanding – from golden eagles to otters, red squirrels to wintering geese and huge seabird colonies – all set among rugged mountains, moorland, ancient Caledonian pine forests and miles of coastline. Our work in Scotland helps protect them all.

Nigg Bay coastal realignment
10 years on from Scotland’s first ever managed realignment project the results show that the project has been a success. The saltmarsh habitat returned more quickly than expected, as did the marine animal life. As a result many species of waterbirds use the area and it has become an essential feeding roosting and refuge area in Nigg Bay.
