Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) has confirmed that a Fife project to improve and link two important wildlife corridors across St Andrews will be a recipient of the Scottish Government’s Biodiversity Challenge Fund.

St Andrews Green Corridors has been awarded almost £162,000 to help reduce habitat loss and tackle invasive non-native species, including Japanese knotweed, and reconnect special areas for wildlife left isolated by years of development.

Building on existing volunteer programmes, a team of volunteers will be recruited to help with the habitat improvement work. The project will be managed by St Andrews Botanic Garden and delivered in partnership with the University of St Andrews, Fife Council and a range of land- and garden-owners.

Professor Thomas Meagher, Chair of the St Andrews Botanic Garden Trust, said: “As lead partner in the St Andrews Green Corridors project, we’re really excited with this award of Scottish Government funding by SNH. The money will enable us to improve around 80 hectares of habitats along and between the two corridors, by planting woodland and creating areas of wetland and meadow, for example. We are looking forward now to working with our partners and fantastic volunteers to help contribute to increasing biodiversity and protecting habitats for wildlife in Fife.”

St Andrews Botanic Garden Trust is supported by the University of St Andrews. Sustainability Manager David Stutchfield said: “The University recognises the vital importance of biodiversity to our town and people who live and work here. The St Andrews Green Corridors project will enable our community to take practical action to enhance the environment and help deliver the University’s Biodiversity Strategy.”

St Andrews Green Corridors is one of 14 successful projects across Scotland to share the £1.8 million committed by the Biodiversity Challenge Fund in the first year of its two-year period.
