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.
