Rewilding the Scottish Highlands
Our vision is of a revitalised wild forest in the Highlands of Scotland, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive.
Our values are at the core of our mission to rewild the Scottish Highlands, informing decisions large and small from the day-to-day running of our office to major conservation projects.
We are groundbreaking
We are an ambitious charity with a big mission. For over 25 years we have sought to bring innovation to conservation, and we continue to strive for new and ground-breaking ways to rewild the Scottish Highlands.
We are collaborative
We are an open, friendly and cooperative organisation. We welcome and encourage collaborative working with other organisations, land owners and the wider community. We believe we can always achieve more through teamwork.
We are pragmatic
We seek prudent, sustainable solutions in everything we do. We are always mindful of our duty to our supporters, our volunteers, our staff and above all to Scotland’s wild forest. Seeking a pragmatic approach safeguards our organisation and the work we undertake.
We understand that mitigating the environmental impact of day-to-day operations is important to organisations and that offsetting carbon is an effective way to balance the scales.
Our accredited carbon offsetting site is located at our conservation estate, Dundreggan, and has the capacity to offset over 50,000 tonnes of CO2. This carefully planted site – containing over 250,000 new native trees which have been planted by 530 passionate volunteers – is validated and verified under the Woodland Carbon Code, the gold-standard for woodland carbon sequestration.
The Code offers carbon credit buyers the assurance that each woodland scheme will deliver the benefits that we say it will, and that that woodland represents genuine new planting.
Projects are certified to ISO standards by a UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) accredited third party and an ongoing monitoring programme for the woodlands is agreed between the parties.
