Otterburn Training Area in the News (2019)

April 29, 2020

In case you missed it, the Otterburn Training Area (OTA) featured twice in 2019’s Ministry of Defence Sustainability Magazine, Sanctuary. The two articles, Walking Underwater and Breeding Under Bridges (p.g. 40) and The Beauty of Bunkers (p.g. 68), highlight the unique natural and built heritage on the OTA, as well as the essential work to preserve and enhance it.

You can download 2019’s Sanctuary Magazine here.

Through our Life on the Ranges project we are working with the Ministry of Defence to carry out a variety of other works on the OTA, from peatland restoration to archaeological excavations. See our Life on the Ranges project page for more details.
