Trees for Life wins Conservation Award

Chris Bathgate

Trees for Life's Rewilding the Highlands initiative has won the Alpine category of the 2016 European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) Conservation Vote, securing more than 7000 votes in an international online vote.

The success will allow the charity to establish one of the UK's most inspiring examples of rewilding. This will involve habitat creation to support wildlife including pine martin, red squirrel, golden eagle and Scottish wildcat, the planting of 50,000 native trees, and also the growing of 10,000 rare montane tree species, at Trees for Life's Dundreggan Conservation Estate in Glenmoriston to the west of Loch Ness.
