Dear Bamff Wildland supporters,

A week has gone by since the campaign closed at the extraordinary sum of £37,925 from 439 supporters. In the days since then we have taken some time to dance on air (and those of us proximate to the Wildland have danced through it) and now we have begun to get the wheels of change in motion. We would like to make particular mention of our crowdfunder coach for Perth and Kinross, Brenda Roddy, for her advice and the close eye she kept on us, which gave us the nous to run a successful campaign. Thank you so much Brenda, for keeping these wild cats on the right track. 

It is more important than ever for us to draw your attention to the Bamff Wildland newsletter. I (Beatrice) will continue to communicate with you about your rewards via the crowdfunder page but the newsletter is your means of receiving future news about progress, species sightings and Wildland developments, from Sophie on words and Dave on photography. Thanks to you all there will be a very great deal going on in the coming year. Discussions with the perimeter fence contractors, and the planning of digging, planting and sowing, are underway already. Then will follow the arrival of the pigs and ponies and, after that, simply whatever wondrous change, growth and disruption the wildlife brings… The great joy of this approach is its dynamism and, to some extent, its mystery

See what your generosity has propelled!

Many of you have been good enough to write to me to correct spellings of names or request other people’s names on your rewards and, just to be absolutely sure of no disappointments, I will shortly be writing to everyone whose reward involves a name, to clarify once and for all before chisels go to wood and ink to paper! 

Our reward delivery dates might seem far off but you will appreciate that design, map making and wood carving take time and our standards are high! We have begun discussions with ecological experts about the best locations for wildlife boxes and osprey platforms, after which the making of the map can begin… and we are currently making selections from Dave’s extraordinary photography. 

We will be in touch…

Thank you, with all our hearts.

Sophie, Dave & Bea
