Six key species get woodland aid

Date : 21st August 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A programme has been launched to help six key species flourish in woodlands across Scotland. Forestry Commission Scotland's new biodiversity plan aims to create "stronger, more adaptable ecosystems". It identifies the capercaillie, black grouse, red squirrel, pearl-bordered fritillary, chequered skipper butterfly and juniper as important species. Environment Minister Mike Russell launched the plan at the Carrick Forest in Dumfries and Galloway. He said Scotland's forests had a key part to play in protecting endangered species.
