Welfare of wildlife has increasingly become a focal point for NatureScot in recent years. NatureScot has developed a draft position statement on wildlife welfare which sets out essential principles on welfare which the organisation will adopt. This report is presented as part of an extension of such principles in seeking to establish how NatureScot’s welfare principles should be applied at the level of individual wildlife animals.
