The Great Trossachs Forest area is home to magnificent wildlife, which depends on habitats which have sadly become rare in many parts of Britain. Some species are dwindling because the habitats they need have been damaged or lost, others are very rarely seen when once they were commonplace.

The Great Trossachs Forest is restoring a mix of habitats across a wide area. The restoration programme will help to safeguard the future of species in decline, like the black grouse, and allow for a richer diversity of wildlife and plants in years to come.

The wildlife we are seeking to help in The Great Trossachs Forest include black grouse, golden eagle, osprey, pine marten, red squirrel, wild cat, water vole and otter.
