European Union LIFE Capercaillie Project
EU LIFE, FCS
The European Union LIFE Capercaillie Project helped to create and manageexisting pinewood habitats to conserve the Highland capercaillie population.
Semi-natural woodlands across the area were expanded and brought into positive management for
biodiversity benefit by land managers, with support from the Forestry Commission’s Woodland Grant
and Woodland Improvement Grant Schemes (now incorporated into the Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme).
