Highlife Wildlife Week

Raasay Primary Pupils took part in Highlife Wildlife Week which ran in conjunction with the Countryside Rangers. Pupils studied various aspects of of wildlife in the environment here on Raasay. They looked at trees in their locality, the bone caves at Inchnadamph and what they can tell us about life in the past. They also looked at re-wilding and debated what this would mean for the environment and, as part of this, created their own bug hotel in the school grounds. Finally, they studied the rocky shore with a field trip to the local shoreline where they looked at the upper, middle and lower shoreline and what different seaweeds, creatures and shells they might find there. They brought their collections back to the school where they used identification sheets to identify the various different species.
