WILDLIFE lovers in parts of Ross and Cromarty are being urged to 'adopt' a mink raft as part of efforts to monitor the invasive species.

The Scottish Invasive Species Initiative is seeking volunteers to adopt its mink rafts in the eastern parts of Ross and Cromarty, as well as eastern Sutherland.

No experience is necessary, and all that volunteers will need to do is check the raft every couple of weeks for footprints. All equipment and training will be provided.

"Folks of eastern Ross and Cromarty, we need your help to save local wildlife! Could you monitor a mink raft and help save native wildlife?" said a spokesman.
