An update on Action for Wildlife in Inverness and Nairn

If you want to find out more about some of the great projects helping the wildlife of Inverness and Nairn then come along to the third Inverness and Nairn Biodiversity Forum which takes place on Wednesday 20 November.

After two years of having the Forum in Inverness organisers will be moving east and concentrating on projects and initiatives happening in Nairnshire this year. Biodiversity is the variety of all life on earth and the places where it is found.

During this event people will hear about the formation of the Nairnshire Naturalists and it plans for the future and about the fun environmental education events run by Wildthings. From a practical point of view, they’ll also be a chance to hear about the work done to conserve and expand the population of the Small Blue butterfly and the control of Invasive species on the River Nairn. Also the exciting and very successful Highland Seashore Project will be highlighted and results revealed of what it has found out so far.

To end the night there will be a talk from Bob Lawton, Biologist of the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fishery Trust, about the Invasive Species control work underway on the River Nairn. This ambitious project is gaining momentum and the successes and challenges will be mentioned.

The Inverness and Nairn Biodiversity Forum will take place at the Nairn Community and Arts Centre on the evening of Wednesday the 20th of November. This free event will start at 7.00pm and finish at 9.15pm. Tea, coffee and shortbread served half way through the evening.

The meeting will include displays on local projects and information on how to get involved with wildlife groups or any wildlife surveys that are happening locally. To book a place, please contact Carol Masheter at  or on 07733771186.
