With changes to the landscape over the years and the increase in global temperatures caused latterly by global warming, ecosystems are changing and not all for the better.

Conservationists of the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Rivers Trust have witnessed and recorded this first hand on the River Findhorn, as the number of salmon that come upriver to spawn have declined gradually over the past few decades, believed to be a result of warmer river water cause by global warming.

In a bid to bring the salmon back to their rightful spawning grounds, the  Customer and Community Investment Fund have given money to a restoration project on the River Findhorn in the Highlands, in a move that has been much welcomed by the local communities and conservationists.
