You only need to set foot in Scotland's lush, verdant and atmospheric rainforests to understand their enchantment. Bursting with biodiversity, these woodlands are one of the world's rarest habitats. But Scotland's Rainforest is in trouble and urgent action is needed to save it.

The Morvern peninsula contains some of Scotland's finest remaining rainforest, and there is huge potential to restore and expand this habitat for the benefit of people and wildlife. Through the RSPB-led Saving Morvern\'s Rainforest project, we hope to support landowners, managers, and the local community in realising their vision of a thriving, healthy rainforest.

The Rainforest Adviser will work closely with the Project Manager and Rainforest Restoration Team to support all elements of Saving Morvern’s Rainforest project.

Key work areas:

  • Increase local awareness and understanding of the significance, value and management requirements of rainforest habitat, particularly to landowners and land managers.
  • Provide advice, training and information to landowners, land managers, land use advisers and the local community on favourable management of rainforest habitat, including for internationally rare species of lichens, bryophytes and ferns.
  • Build and maintain positive working relationships with landowners, land managers, land use advisers, specialist contractors, members of Morvern Deer Management Group, the local community, project partners and Alliance for Scotland’s Rainforest members to ensure integrated, effective and efficient delivery of project objectives.
  • Delivery of demonstration events to showcase best practice rainforest management.
  • Provide conservation information and specialist knowledge to RSPB project staff to support decision-making on the project, including assisting with the development and planning of practical works.
  • Carry out relevant survey and monitoring activities across the project area.
  • Manage electronic data, mapping and reporting systems.
