This autumn sees the launch of the first Great Scottish Squirrel Survey.
During National Red Squirrel Week (23-29 September), the Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels (SSRS) project is calling on people to get outdoors, explore nature and be on the lookout
for tufted ears and bushy tails.
SSRS monitors squirrel populations throughout the year, but autumn is a particularly rewarding time for squirrel-watching as they busy themselves gathering food and preparing for the colder months ahead.
Impact Funding Partners are to manage the Big Climate Conversation Community Fund (BCCCF) on behalf of the Scottish Government.
The Scottish Government is currently holding The Big Climate Conversation, engaging with individuals, the private and public sectors about the role that everyone needs to play in ending Scotland’s contribution to climate change.
Communities and businesses in the Highlands are being asked to share their experiences about how severe weather and climate change has affected them over the past few years.
The Scottish Government has announced further events as part of its Big Climate Conversation.
Events have now been scheduled for Perth, Edinburgh, Dumfries and Inverness in August and September 2019.
The Scottish Government is inviting members of the public to a series of event to give their views on how they feel about what Scotland is doing, and what Scotland needs to do, to combat the global issue of climate change.
The aim of the project is to build pro-ecological attitudes towards the inhabitants of rural areas. It is directed to residents of areas covered by the LEADER programme, especially for people living in single-family houses, people with farms.
