Wildlife of Angus

Today we were at Woodlands Primary school in Carnoustie to talk to children about work carried out to identify, record and protect wildlife in Angus. Children from the school  participated in the East Haven BioBlitz in 2016 when they learned about various marine species and took part in a rock pooling session. Today we were able to up-date them on the number and type of species now recorded in East Haven which includes over 170 species of moth and 120 bird species. Of course there was great interest in the dolphin population and the baby seals which are sometimes found stranded on the beach. It is always enjoyable (if not exhausting!) to spend time with the children who are so engaged and interested in the natrual environment. We hope that what they learn at this young age will remain with them into adulthood and that they will continue to show concern for wildlife.
