“I am a botanist and artist living near Edinburgh. Since the late 1980s, I’ve made many visits to Rahoy Hills, doing botanical survey work and, from 2001 to 2017, as a member of the reserve management committee. I’m interested in all aspects of this reserve’s ecology, just as I am in all environments everywhere from mountains to cities, but my Rahoy artwork focused especially on the amazing mossy woodland and on the people who work there.”

Ben Averis, Botanist & Artist

“I’m an illustrator currently creating comics and repeat patterns featuring different species of animal – cats, bats and blobfish to name a few. Exploring Rahoy Hills and learning about the various native species and conservation initiatives was exactly what I needed to breathe some new life into my work. I was inspired by my experience to create a series of all-ages comics – Wild Lives – based on these animals, with the aim to spark, in future generations, an interest in natural science and conservation.”
