Golden eagle project launches in southern Scotland

Golden eagles will be taking to the skies of southern Scotland soon, when a project to boost their numbers takes flight this month.

The South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project was announced last year and secured £1.3million from The Heritage Lottery Fund.

The RSPB is now seeking new team members to work with local schools, communities, landowners and gamekeepers in Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders, to help raise awareness about golden eagles and their conservation needs.
