Scottish Raptor Study Group member receives MBE from the Queen

17 July 2013

Congratulations to SRSG member and former police chief inspector Kevin Findlater, who has been awarded an MBE for services to the environment and the communities of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs. Kevin joined the police force in 1984 after studying biology at Stirling University and he became one of the first wildlife crime officers in Scotland. He was instrumental in leading ‘Operation Ironworks’ which tackled antisocial behaviour across Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and helped to reduce crime rates and problems with littering. Kevin was an active member of Central Raptor Study Group and has now retired to Dumfriesshire, where he has recently joined the Dumfries & Galloway Raptor Study Group.
