New Scheme for Scotland

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) has launched a three-year scheme to boost sea eagles throughout their breeding range in Scotland. The scheme, which will start in late spring, will encourage farmers and crofters to support sea eagle conservation and includes the setting up of an advisory panel to guide SNH. SNH chairman Andrew Thin, said: ?The local sea eagle management schemes are recognised success stories. I am delighted to see progress towards a national scheme.?
