Scotland’s National Week for Wildlife gets even bigger
3 to 11 June 2006
Now in its fourth year, Scotland’s National Week for Wildlife is even bigger in 2006 with over 160 events organised by the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) from 3 to 11 June 2006.
Wildlife Week is part of a UK-wide initiative by wildlife trusts all around the country to get people involved in the natural heritage around them. With events for all ages, members and non-members will get the chance to discover the diverse nature of wildlife.
In Scotland, the programme promises to deliver some fun, interesting and informative activities, talks, walks and guided tours on land and on sea. From the weird and the wonderful, the cute and the scary, to the large and the small, this is a chance to get out and discover some of the amazing creatures and features to be found in Scotland.
As Stuart Glen (Wildlife Week Co-ordinator) said, the aim of Wildlife Week is to get people to enjoy wildlife first-hand: “This programme is designed to motivate people to explore what’s outside and discover wildlife on their doorstep. You don’t have to be an expert, or even live in a rural area – you just have to look in the right places. By joining an organisation like SWT or participating in Wildlife Week, we can help by giving you access to the knowledge, information and people who can help develop your interest into a passion.”
