Golden Eagle conservation triumph: South of Scotland project soars to new heights

In a remarkable conservation effort, the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project has achieved a groundbreaking milestone by successfully relocating eight golden eagle chicks to a secret location in southern Scotland. This accomplishment has boosted the region’s golden eagle population to approximately 46, marking the highest number recorded in three centuries.

Notably, Edward and Iona, two eagles transported by the project, have formed a pair near Moffat, Scotland’s first Eagle Town. This positive development is a testament to the project’s dedication to safeguarding these majestic birds and restoring their presence in the south. The Moffat Eagle Festival, now in its third year, is set to celebrate these achievements and promote further support for this vital conservation initiative.
