An Aberdeen film maker has released a documentary about a “human wolf pack” project.
Lisa Marley, 27, originally from Westhill, created the 30-minute documentary following a study by charity Trees for Life in the Highlands.
The scheme, called Project Wolf, saw volunteers spend weeks in the Caledonian Forest, mimicking the behaviours and disturbance patterns of large predators such as wolves.
It was designed in an effort to curb overgrazing of saplings and new growth by the native red deer population
Lisa funded the documentary through a crowdfunding campaign in 2017.
She said: “Although I’ve always had a strong affinity with the natural world, making Project Wolf has really opened my eyes to the history of the woodlands that I encounter, most prominently how many non-native species are widespread even in older areas of forest.
“It has been fascinating to follow Trees for Life’s efforts to preserve the ancient Caledonian Forest – maintaining our landscape’s wonderful natural heritage – in such an unusual way.
“When ventured out into the forest to join the ‘human wolf pack’ I really didn’t know what to expect.
“I had no idea about the diversity of reasons that compelled the volunteers to become involved in the project, and how profoundly their time in the Highlands would affect them.”
