Project launched to save Scotland’s rarest insects

A NEW project is being launched in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park to save six of Scotland’s rarest invertebrates.

The shining guest ant, dark bordered beauty moth, small scabious mining bee, northern silver-stiletto fly, pine hoverfly and Kentish glory moth have all been identified by experts as needing urgent conservation action, with many of them having their last strongholds within the national park.

RSPB Scotland, the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA), Buglife, Butterfly Conservation and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) will work in partnership on the Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms project over the next three years to improve the conservation fortunes of these six insect species.
