Mammal conservation projects
When people say that spotting wildlife is one of the best things about visiting Scotland’s woodlands, there’s usually one animal that’s top of their list...
We do our best to look after them all – and the special places where they live.
That includes putting wildlife first when we’re working in the forest, restoring all kinds of important habitats and having specific conservation plans for key species.
For example, red deer management can be controversial but is important for a whole variety of plants and animals, while the re-introduction of water voles is one of our big success stories.
