Call to save Mull machair

The Oban Times - - News -

VOL­UN­TEERS at Mull’s Cal­gary Bay need help to pro­tect its unique machair and are rais­ing money to pro­tect the frag­ile ecosys­tem.

A suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing page set up to raise money to help vis­i­tors un­der­stand the frag­ile and unique na­ture of the land has bought fenc­ing and worked with the landowner – but the group still has am­bi­tions to raise more.

Jan Brown, of the Friends of Cal­gary Bay com­mit­tee said: ‘All av­enues of fund­ing have been ex­plored and crowd­fund­ing is the only quick way to raise the money for the fenc­ing. Please help us bring the machair back to life by do­nat­ing on the Just­Giv­ing page found on Face­book, Friends of Cal­gary Bay page, and Twit­ter.’
