We’re working with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the National Trust for Scotland on a major project to help protect the UK’s internationally important seabird islands. The Biosecurity for LIFE project, which was awarded £700,000 of funding from EU LIFE last year, aims to raise awareness of the risk to seabirds such as puffins, Manx shearwater and European storm-petrel from predators such as rats, stoats and mink.
We have announced ambitious plans to ensure that our rivers and catchments are clean, healthy and rich in wildlife, inspiring people to connect with these waterways and their cultural and social impact.
Brand new for 2018, we’re opening the basement for the very first time since the fire. Embark on an atmospheric journey, deep into the most damaged spaces at the heart of Clandon Park. Discover a new display charting some of the key questions we’ve considered over the course of this hugely complex project and explore previously unseen areas, revealing astonishing views from basement floor to scaffolding roof.
Joan is just one example of the inspirational women contributing to the Trust today. Her story launches a themed programme of events and exhibitions throughout 2018 exploring the previously untold stories of the women that have shaped and safeguarded our special places.
