Climate Action Coastlines aims to identify the most appropriate nature-based solutions to protect vulnerable Highland coastlines from increased coastal erosion and flooding. The main target area is Loch Fleet and its saltmarsh habitats, which offer local and national value. This project involves research to understand the current habitat condition, state of biodiversity and the organic carbon that is buried, stored, and emitted.
The Highland Council received £25,000.00 in the SMEEF 2023/24 grant round for this work. This was our first fully privately financed round made possible by donations from businesses interested in restoring and enhancing Scotland’s coasts and seas. Contributors are listed here.
