You’ve probably heard of ‘Dances with Wolves’ but how about ‘walking like wolves’? An incredibly unique and cleaver project is helping to preserve Scotland’s forests from overgrazing by deer. People are patrolling the woodland in the same way a pack of wild wolves would so that the red deer are encouraged to scatter instead of devouring all the saplings and new growth in one area. You can watch a great video of the project on p72 of this month’s Scotland Correspondent magazine bit.ly/2De5iTq See MoreSee Less

On 13 January 1915 Mary Slessor known to many as "Ma", died in Calabar. The Aberdeen born missionary dedicated her life to the children of Nigeria where she saved the lives of hundreds of children at a time when the birth of twins was considered an evil curse.
Superstitious villagers believed twins meant the mother was guilty of a great sin and one of the babies must be the offspring of an evil spirit. Unable to tell which one was ‘bad’ both babies would often be left in the bush to starve or eaten by wild animals.
Slessor worked hard to educate the local people and adopted every abandoned baby she found – saving the lives of hundreds of children as a result.

Bowed Joseph is an often overlooked character of 18th century Edinburgh. A leader of the infamous city mob he was a force to be reckoned with as he could drum up a 10,000 strong crowd to tackle any perceived injustice. Earlier this month a life-size model of Joseph went on display in the University of Edinburgh’s Anatomical Museum, bringing back to life the story of one of Scotland’s most infamous rabble-rousers bit.ly/2RFgbpq See MoreSee Less
