The Scottish Wildlife Trust is inviting intrepid adventurers to find the Lost Species of Scotland online all next week.
The new online competition is inspired by Disney • Pixar’s animated film set in Scotland, Brave, and will run for five days in the run up to the film’s general release on Friday 3 August. The Lost Species will include the brown bear, which no longer roams Scotland’s great outdoors as it does in Brave.
These lost species were once an integral part of the Scottish landscape but through a combination of habitat loss, climate change and hunting by man, they have long since disappeared from these shores. Some species, like the beaver, have been brought back to Scotland after hundreds of years away.
You can discover the lost species for yourself all next week (between Monday 30 July and Friday 3 August), as each day a Lost Species of Scotland will be hidden somewhere on the Trust’s website.
There is a Brave-inspired goodie-bag plus a complimentary Watch membership of the Scottish Wildlife Trust to be won every day for finding the Lost Species of Scotland. At the end of the week, one lucky entrant will win tickets to see Brave for a family of 4 plus a real-life bow and arrow to make them a true wildlife adventurer! They will also receive a complimentary Family membership of the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
Will you take up the challenge and help us find the Lost Species of Scotland?
