Extinction Rebellion activists have held a demonstration in Inverness to highlight the risk to wildlife from climate change and deforestation.
A slow funeral procession featuring a coffin, skeletons, placards and masks, walked from the Town House to Falcon Square on Saturday afternoon.
The group highlighted species threatened with extinction including orangutans, rhinoceros and exotic fish, as well as Scottish species such as mountain hares, red squirrels and pine martens.
It comes after the UK’s grouse shooting season officially began on Thursday and with less than 100 days until COP26 in Glasgow.
Kate MacLachlan, an environmental campaigner from Drumnadrochit, said: “We need to lock carbon in to reduce climate warming. All carbon.
“Despite pledges on regulation, the Scottish government continues to subsidise large sporting estates where unlicensed muirburn and unlicensed use of medicated grit damage our precious peatland.
“Climate warming and the extinction of species means we all need to take responsibility and lobby our politicians.”
