Species on the Edge


Species on the Edge is a bold and ambitious partnership programme of eight conservation organisations, all dedicated to improving the fortunes of 37 rare and vulnerable species found along Scotland's coasts and islands. Programme activity is spread over seven project areas: the Inner Hebrides and Argyll; Solway; East Coast; North Coast; Orkney; Shetland; and the Outer Hebrides.

Throughout the duration of the four-and-a-half-year programme, the Species on the Edge Outer Hebrides team, Emma and Mairi, will be working with local communities and land owners to support nine target species acros the islands: 

Artic Tern; Little Tern; Great Yellow Bumblebee; Irish Ladies Tresses; 

Northern Colletes bee; Short-necked Oil Beetle; Lapwing; Curlew; Red-necked Phalarope.

The Outer Hebrides Wildlife Festival is a community-led festival, coordinated by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust on behalf of Species on the Edge.
