The Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust

Join us in an exciting new chapter in the Trust’s life as we change our name to the Findhorn Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust. We want to continue developing as an organisation and address the issues facing our rivers and the wildlife that depends on them.

We are launching our new FNLRT Management Plan 2021 which details the diverse range of projects we are planning to help conserve and restore our river catchments.

Over the course of the last two centuries removal of natural forests, overgrazing and changing land use have significantly degraded the ecosystems of our rivers. Moreover, we now face a climate crisis which is causing increasing global temperatures and dramatically changing weather patterns. These factors combine to present a very serious threat to wildlife in the catchment of our rivers, particularly to salmon.

This demands our urgent attention.

These are global threats, which require large scale programs and significant funding to begin to reverse the trends. The Trust recognises that we have an important part to play to ensure that our river catchments benefit from these initiatives. To be effective, projects will need to be coordinated at a scale beyond that of individual land holdings. A natural unit for this coordination is the river catchments. We will only succeed if we work in coalition with landowners and local interests, across catchments and with partners who enable scale and additional resources to be brought to bear on these issues.

We look forward to working with all our friends and partners to make a difference in this important work to improve the quality of our river environments.
