Clinging by a claw
Most of us yearn to catch a glimpse of the glorious Highland Tiger, yet never do. If we don’t act immediately, we never will. Scotland's wildcats are teetering on the edge of extinction.
Without your support, we cannot secure a future for the beautiful Highland Tiger. 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
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. Your support has and will continue to play a vital role in securing a more hopeful future for Scotland's wildcats.
Please donate to Saving Wildcats and your gift will help to build an innovative wildcat conservation 'breeding for release' centre at our Highland Wildlife Park. The first of its kind in the UK, the centre will establish founder populations of wildcats and prepare them for life in the wild.
£7.50 could feed a wildcat for a week
£30 could vaccinate one of the cats to protect them from disease
£350 could feed a wildcat for an entire year in the new centre
£1500 could buy a GPS collar to monitor a wildcat once it has been released into the wild
Together we can return the Highland Tiger to the remote wild landscapes where they belong.Donate

Led by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland in collaboration with NatureScot, Forestry Land Scotland, Cairngorms National Park Authority, Nordens Ark and Junta de Andalucía, Saving Wildcats is supported by the LIFE programme of the European Union.
