“Our pupils and staff were not only captivated by the animals that visited our garden, but motivated to learn more about them and find out how to encourage other wildlife” Ciara Gibson, PT, Grandtully Primary

“It’s just such a fantastic educational experience for everyone!  The whole school are hooked, and the children are viewing their playground so very differently.  Their wee minds have been blown… Cannot thank you both enough!” Newtonhill Primary

“I liked putting the camera out.  Before I saw the video of the pine martens, I thought they were make-believe creatures like unicorns!” Florence McNeil (Age 6).
