New breeding enclosure for Scottish wildcats

At Aigas Field Centre we are dedicated to helping save the Scottish wildcat from extinction. The Scottish wildcat is our last remaining native feline and one of our last remaining predators. An emblem of Highland clans and an important part of the ecosystem. A creature we have lived alongside for thousands of years, is now under real threat of disappearing.

Aigas Field Centre are breeding Scottish wildcats in collaboration with collections from Scottish Wildcat Action, providing a valuable population which can be released back into the wild for future generations to live alongside. We need to build a new enclosure to accommodate the expanding captive population of wildcats. The larger the population in captivity, the more secure the future of the Scottish wildcat will be.

    My name is Ben, I am the Staff Naturalist at Aigas Field Centre. My primary duty as part of my role is working with our Scottish wildcats. These beautiful creatures can only be saved through captive breeding. We need more enclosures to enable the captive population to expand.
