Educating Children on the Local Wildlife and how they are Protected

Many people in the area were not aware of the presence of otters within the local area as this creature is a very secretive animal. Otters are one of the top predators in Scotland, feeding mainly on fish, waterbirds, amphibians and crustaceans.

The local schools were challenged to design posters about ecology and the natural environment of the River Carron. Well done to Lexi and Isla from Arduthie for their winning poster along with the other children put in a lot of effort into each poster, which featured different wildlife including otters, bats, birds and fish. These animals are all important and have varying levels of protection by law, which the children have explained within their posters. The top three posters have been displayed along the boardwalk at the beach, with the other posters displayed at each work zone.

Due to coronavirus, the River Carron Trail in conjunction with the education programme and engagement was welcome by the children and their families as it got them out of the house and learning about the ecology of the River and enjoying the artwork of the pupils.
