CHIL­DREN at Dun­beg Pri­mary School have been busy plant­ing tree saplings in their grounds as part of a na­tional cam­paign from Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Scot­land (RZSS) and Cly­des­dale Bank.

Pupils were vis­ited by the Wild about Scot­land bus last week and were given 15 trees to plant.

An es­ti­mated 60 trees are re­quired to grow in or­der to off­set the Wild about Scot­land bus’s car­bon foot­print, so to plant 420 means the cam­paign, in the­ory, would off­set emis­sions from the bus seven times over.

Wild about Scot­land ed­u­cates the next gen­er­a­tion of con­ser­va­tion­ists about the im­por­tance of pro­tect­ing Scot­tish wildlife. The bus vis­ited the var­i­ous schools through­out the week to teach pupils about Scot­tish na­tive species, their habi­tats and en­vi­ron­ments and what they can do to pro­tect them.

Dun­beg pupils en­joyed the Wild about Scot­land bus.
