Exciting news! We have been shortlisted by the European Outdoor Conservation Association for a potential award of nearly 20,000 Euros. Our project will re-connect Abernethy to its neighbouring Caledonian forest, Glenmore, through the planting of 30,000 native trees, re-establishing a huge wildlife corridor. The stunning Caledonian forest once covered large parts of Scotland, but today just 1% remains. The RSPB’s Abernethy National Nature Reserve includes the UK’s largest remnant of Caledonian forest, home to 4,500 species, 20% of which are nationally rare. This project will be a vital step towards our 200 year vision to expand the forest to almost twice its size.
