Thursday's Thought:

"In the 1980's all the vegetation in this Glen, including the heather was shaved bare by the incessant demand of hungry deer. Today, following a few years of investment by a visionary, the natural processes that began 9000 years ago are giving revival to the land.

I have lived to see an impossible dream come true and that - is very special"

- Dick Balharry
May 24, 1937 – April 22, 2015

The full transcript of Dick's speech is available here:

We would like to share this very touching video of Dick Balharry. The video which was originally shown on ITV (then Grampian) shows Dick, with his son David, rescue, train and release a Golden Eagle. A reminder of Dick's passion for nature and the environment. He will be greatly missed.

It's Earth Day today! Check out the Earth Day website for ideas on how you can lessen your impact on our planet. They even have a useful carbon footprint calculator to try, the calculator will show you how many planets it actually takes to support your lifestyle, pretty scary. The UK doesn't feature at the moment but you can select a country close by to get an idea.
