Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund (NCHF)
Back in the 1950s Loch Garten sprang into the national news as the centre of efforts to protect ospreys in Scotland. It was one of this nation's most successful wildlife stories and today the site remains synonymous with celebrating our natural history. A new project - Wildlife Watch Abernethy - is now set to build on that popularity.
Wildlife Watch Abernethy has received just over £252,000 from the Natural Cultural and Heritage Fund, which will create three new, local jobs as well as extend the opening season and improve the visitor experience at Loch Garten, so more people can enjoy the nature reserve and learn about conservation in the Cairngorms.
