Many people think the Highlands of Scotland are the epitome of wilderness – in fact, they are just a shadow of their former self. Almost all of the ancient forest and wildlife has been removed.
Much of the flora and fauna that once thrived across Scotland, including wolves, bears and lynx, has been lost.
As a direct consequence, deer species have no predators and their continual grazing prevents the natural regrowth of forest.
TENT is committed to the restoration of native species and associated heritage to Alladale Wilderness Reserve – a pioneering project seeking to develop a new rural economy in the Scottish Highlands through increased biodiversity and ecotourism.
Through your support TENT helps to fund the recovery of the Scottish wildcat, the restoration of the threatened red squirrel and the environmental education of hundreds of children every year through the HOWL programme – an initiative TENT founded.
