Saving the Highland Tiger
Urgent action is needed to save our wildcats. Building on a strong partnership keen to make a difference, Scottish Wildcat Action is the first national conservation plan with a vision to restore viable populations of Scottish wildcats north of the Highland fault line. We are committed to:
- Working with local people in wildcat priority areas to reduce the risks of hybridisation, disease and accidental persecution;
- Breeding healthy wildcats for later release to bolster the population through a conservation breeding programme;
- Gathering extensive data and sharing our findings to improve understanding of this elusive predator.

We have just five years to stop Scottish wildcats from disappearing. Only by working together can we hope to achieve this. Can you help?
