Trust The Trust

This month marks the 6th year since the founding of The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust. During this time the Trust has acquired 182 members, many from the Town and throughout the Country, even some from abroad. While many take our river water birds for granted, the Trust has diligently fostered their welfare and wellbeing every single day. Over £18,000 has been raised and spent on their care during this time. Sadly, no financial help has ever been offered by the local River Community Council or Highland Council towards the birds, or Trusts endeavours. 

The Trust has put Nairn wildlife on the Map as a local tourist attraction.

Annual Membership costs £20 for a family and can be assured that every penny goes to the welfare of the birds. All trustees are voluntary unpaid positions. Trust constitution extract below.

The purpose /objects: of the Trust shall be the Advancement, of welfare, health and protection of the River Nairn Swans, waterfowl and waterbirds within the Tidal reaches of the River Nairn. This includes their nesting Island site, associated riverbanks, environment and habitat, for the good of the community and future generations in perpetuity. The trust shall be non political.

Trust The Trust.
