What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
Why is the Galapagos tortoise important? The Galapagos tortoise is a "keystone species." All species within an ecosystem rely on each other, but the impact a keystone species has on the environment and other species is particularly great. If a keystone species disappears, the entire ecosystem will change dramatically or collapse. Galapagos tortoises have played an important role in creating the ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands by shaping the biological landscape to the benefit of the islands’ other animals and plants. The tortoises help the proliferation of native plants by grazing on them and dispersing their seeds. They also trample areas of vegetation, thereby thinning out and opening up new areas of ground for different types of vegetation to grow. Without the tortoises, a few fast-growing plant species could dominate a much less biodiverse ecosystem.

Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies? You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
We would love to go to the Shetland Islands but can not afford the price. Could anyone tell me where I would find a lot of ponies in? Scotland
Will Shetland and Orkney get their independence from Scotland? Good point, thanks for reminding me. Shetland is a Viking island and so too is Orkney - the very names have that ring of the Vikings about them. Indeed, the world's biggest Viking event is held each year on the Island of Shetland Up Helly A Lerwick Shetland http:// Shetland Times http:// Welsh Barbarian Savage

Is free / wild camping legal or tolerated on Kinmen and Matsu islands? Matsu island of Taiwan (but actually located just near Fuzhou, China) is beautiful and sparsely populated. Official tourist accommodations are expensive compared to PRC and even a little high compared to Taiwan perhaps.It seems like a gorgeous place to camp wild. But I can't seem to find anywhere if you might get in trouble for doing so outside an official campground. In fact I can't even find info regarding whether there are official campgrounds.I'd assume the answer for Matsu would be the same for Kinmen (Quemoy) since they are often mentioned together though not actually so close to each other as I just found out.
