We have regularly reported that the Scottish Wildcat (Felis
sylvestris sylvestris) is at risk, partly as a result
interbreeding with domestic cats. Hardly a week seems to pass
without the efforts to conserve the pure wildcat being
reported in the press or on news websites.

is, of course, closely connected to the Scottish
Wildcat and an image of a cat holding a serpent
features on the Chief''s badge.
It is becoming
increasingly difficult for your webmaster
to identify and publish detailed reports on all the
current conservation and research activity on this website. It
has therefore been decided this new page to the site listing
brief details of recent reports and links to relevant
websites. We expect to add links on a regular basis so please
remember to come back and visit this page on a
regular basis. If you have a particular interest in
wildlife it may be worth adding the page to your favourites
