In 2019, 247 Carrbridge residents completed a questionnaire to share their views about capercaillie conservation. The majority felt capercaillie should be protected for future generations and always be in Scotland. In response, the Carrbridge Capercaillie Conservation Strategy was created by the Carrbridge Capercaillie Group; a group of local volunteers.
All of the actions in the Strategy are based on the common views of residents identified by the questionnaire. You can read the results from the questionnaire here
The Carrbridge Capercaillie Conservation Strategy was published for consultation in 2020. Residents shared their views and based on those views, three Key Actions in the Strategy are currently being delivered as a priority. Those actions are outlined in the Action Plan here.
Events and activities
Over 40 events and activities have been held in Carrbridge, enabling hundreds of residents to share their views and get involved in helping to deliver the Carrbridge Capercaillie Conservation Strategy. Once Covid-19 restrictions ease, new events and activities will be available.
Currently the Carrbridge Capercaillie Group are consulting the community on path improvements, as outlined in the Strategy. You can read the consultation booklet here
