Native species conservation genetics
Our aim is to provide genetic support for conservation management action in Scotland and the UK.
We work closely with the RZSS native species programme to deliver genetic management advice where it is needed. We are closely involved with RZSS’s work on Eurasian beaver and wildcat and are the genetic partner of Scottish Wildcat Action. In the past, work at RZSS WildGenes has also centred on a large range of native species including the golden eagle, white-tailed eagle, capercaillie and red squirrel.
