The Cairngorms National Park Authority are leading the project, which brings together over 45 partners to achieve inclusive, transformational change for people and nature in the National Park. The project will tackle the climate emergency, protect and enhance biodiversity, and deliver meaningful improvements to people’s health and wellbeing.

The project will involve a wide range of partners, from NHS Highland to Deer Management Groups and local communities, working together to tackle the climate emergency and nature crisis, as well as delivering an economy that works for all. Covering over 4,500 km², the Cairngorms is the largest national park in the UK and is home to 25% of all threatened and rare species, such as capercaillie, wildcats, osprey and golden eagles.
