South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project is looking for your views

Golden Eagle: Highland Safaris, Perthshire

Golden Eagle: Highland Safaris, Perthshire

 A new project to help golden eagles in the South of Scotland has received initial support of more than £1 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The scheme aims to boost numbers of the iconic bird to up to 16 pairs in Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. CCTV ‘eagle cams’ will give the public an opportunity to keep an eagle eye on chicks as they grow. At present, there are only two to four pairs in the south of the country with limited nesting success. The project would welcome your views – a public consultation questionnaire is available on https://www.goldeneaglessouthofscotland.co.uk/ (closing date 30 September 2016).
