The East Ayrshire Coalfield Environment Initiative (CEI) is a successful partnership between the local authority and conservation bodies, working with the community over the last 12 years to enhance, conserve, and promote the environment in East Ayrshire. Our three aims are:

  1. Environment – to enhance the natural environment and landscape within the CEI project area.
  2. Understanding – to increase understanding and appreciation of East Ayrshire’s wildlife and its value, providing and developing opportunities for learning about and experiencing wildlife.
  3. Engagement – to increase community participation in wildlife conservation, enabling local people to contribute to environmental improvements and develop new skills

Get involved with the CEI through our volunteering, events and education programmes and help make a difference to the natural environment in your community. To find out more about our activities, please see our current and past projects.
