We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

Traprain Sheep Minders are needed to check up on the flock of sheep brought in for conservation grazing at Traprain Law, 5 miles east of Haddington. We need you to count all the sheep from a distance to make sure they are all present and check they appear in good health.
Looking after sheep in this way is known as 'lookering' and those who do it 'lookers', so if you've ever thought of yourself as a bit of a looker, now's your chance to show it!

Organisation aims and objectives

Provides opportunities for members of the public to complete practical conservation tasks in conjunction with East Lothians Countryside Ranger Service.
