A PROJECT to improve the biodiversity and prospects in and around a Fife town is among the latest recipients of a nature fund being administered by the Scottish Government.
Among the other beneficiaries of this latest batch of funding – £7.6m – includes river management at Insh Marshes, in the Cairngorms, and ‘rainforest’ work and rhododendron control in Mid-Argyll.
The Nature Restoration Fund totals at least £65m.
Says the Scottish Government, here: “This round is focussed on supporting large-scale projects, including multi-year projects that run up to 2026.
“For the first time, it also includes development funding to help organisations bring big restoration projects to the point of delivery, addressing a key capacity gap in the sector.”
