RSPB Scotland has made appointments to two new posts it has created to improve knowledge in schools of white-tailed sea eagles. Judith Bullivant will work with teachers and pupils in Wester Ross and Sarah Stephenson will cover Skye and Lochalsh region. RSPB Scotland said it had received a number of requests from schools about eagle-themed field teaching.

The two new posts are part of an RSPB project call Seeviews. Informing communities in western Scotland about sea eagle and their re-introduction programmes.

Dr Alison MacLennan, RSPB conservation officer for Skye and Lochalsh, said pupils would be offered teaching material in England and Gaelic. She said: “The RSPB sets great store in introducing young people to the wonders of nature and it doesn’t get much more wonderful than our magnificent white-tailed eagles. “I would welcome any other schools interested in the project to contact me to take advantage of the scheme.” The full story can be followed here.
