“For over 30 years Aigas Field Centre has been giving young, highly-dedicated naturalists a huge step up in the ultra-competitive environmental sector. For the participants, the rewards are many—first encounters with otters or eagles; tracking pine martens in the snow; or delivering that first lecture on pinewood ecology. For us the rewards are two-fold: firstly we provide ourselves with educated, trained staff for the operative season ahead; secondly, we have the pleasure of watching them develop and grow before finally fledging our nest and going on to forge their own way ahead.” – Sir John Lister-Kaye Bt OBE
