The Machair LIFE+ Project attended this year’s South Uist agricultural show to support the International Year of Biodiversity.

The Machair LIFE+ team were joined by the Uist Wader Project, the Hebridean Mink Project, and the Outer Hebrides Natural History Society in the show’s biodiversity stand. The Machair LIFE+ information display was extremely popular and well received by visitors to the show; and the project’s seaweed spreader exhibited adjacent to the stand created a lot of interest – as did one of the project’s experimental goose deterrent kites soaring above. Look out for Machair LIFE+ at the North Uist show on 11th August.
