Communities to start action planning this summer
What can people who live, work and play in the Cairngorms National Park do to help secure the long-term survival of capercaillie? The Cairngorms Capercaillie Project is aiming to answer this question by December 2019.
To answer it well the project is currently seeking experts who have what it takes to enable as many people as possible to explore and identify collectively what they can do to help save our capercaillie from extinction.
Applications from consultancies with considerable expertise and experience in this type of work are currently being sought via the Public Contracts Scotland website. Anyone wishing to tender for the contracts must record their interest through the PCS website. For those simply keen to read the tenders, you can access them through the links below.
Once the tenders above have been awarded, key interest groups, individuals and organisations will all be invited to take part in facilitated workshops due to kick off this summer. Through those workshops people will be invited to share what’s important to them and to find common ground based on principles. Together people will be able to explore and decide how to help capercaillie based on what’s meaningful and relevant to each community and where consensus lies.
