Clinging by a claw
Most of us yearn to catch a glimpse of the glorious Scottish wildcat, yet never do. If we don’t act immediately, we never will. The wildcat is teetering on the edge.
Though revered, wildcats in Scotland have been persecuted for centuries. Add to that habitat fragmentation, and interbreeding with domestic cats, and it is doubtful that their numbers in the wild now reach three figures.
The wildcat’s survival now hangs tenuously on a dramatic plan to create a National Wildlife Reintroductions Centre, in the Cairngorms National Park. This state-of-the-art breeding facility will bring together wildcat experts, a dedicated veterinary unit, and a specialised pre-release training programme, focusing initially on wildcats, yet with the flexibility to help other priority species in the future.Donate
How you can make a difference
The tragic demise of the wildcat is manmade. We owe it to the natural world to act fast before it really is too late.
Without your support we cannot secure a future for the beautiful Highland tiger with its staring green eyes. Without your support we cannot fulfil our vision to restore wildcats as a vital link in Scotland’s ecosystems. Without your support we could easily be the generation that witnesses yet another extinction. Without you, this symbol of wild beauty will be but a memory.Donate
