Bunloit Rewilding

Situated on the northwest shore of Loch Ness, the Bunloit estate is home to an exciting rewilding project with a focus on carbon capture, boosting biodiversity and working with the local community.

Bunloit features a diverse range of habitats where you can find pine martens, red squirrels, wild boar, roe and sika deer, to name a few! The project will be working to restore natural ecological processes in altered parts of the landscape, improving habitats for wildlife and developing the site as a carbon sink in the fight against climate change.

NatureSpy are thrilled to be supporting Bunloit with their camera trapping needs. Through camera trap technical and survey support, we’re helping the project establish their ecological baseline and gather lots of engaging videos for a wider audience in the process.

Why Did Bunloit Need Help?
How is NatureSpy Helping?
  • Pine marten
  • Red squirrel
  • Badger
  • Stoat
  • Weasel
  • Fox
  • Sika deer
  • Wild boar
  • Bunloit have 2 main camera trapping aims: The first is to gain a greater understanding of which species are present in the area and in which habitats.
  • The second is to gather engaging camera trap images to share with a wider audience.
  • To help achieve these aims the project strategy is two-fold: 1. To use camera traps to create a species inventory of the area.
  • And 2. To develop a camera trap survey method for annual surveys to track change in wildlife across habitats over time.
  • There were 2 key areas Bunloit needed assistance with: The first was that the estate was only recently acquired to be developed as a rewilding project and in these early stages Bunloit needed to know which species were present and where.
  • The second was that they needed advice on camera trap equipment and the methods required to understand the diversity of species on site and run annual camera trap surveys.
  • We're helping Bunloit by advising on a range of core areas. These include; advising on suitable camera trap equipment as well as their survey method and maintenance and data management.
  • We're providing on the ground support with the initial setup of cameras, providing training for staff and ongoing remote support.
Camera Used
