Bird Gardens promote conservation with new visitor attraction

Community interest company Bird Gardens Scotland CIC is located at Oxton in the Scottish Borders.

Their mission is to protect bird and plant species, including those critically endangered. The centre also facilitates conservation breeding and rearing programmes.

SOSE has provided £25,000 in support to help develop a seven-acre site to house and breed over 300 birds from across the world. The funding has directly allowed the company to build a new boardwalk for visitors to use in the outdoor area.

The facility also acts as a community hub within the Scottish Borders, including a coffee shop and playground. The outdoor classroom and education area will create a recreational greenspace for visitors to learn more about endangered birds.
