The Scottish Wildcat Conservation Action Plan, which runs from 2013 to 2019, aims to implement conservation action to halt the decline of the species. It’s one of the most ambitious conservation action plans ever produced in Scotland, and forms the basis for a longer-term vision to restore viable wildcat populations north of the Highland Boundary Fault Line.
The Scottish Wildcat Conservation Action Plan:
- identifies and coordinates national priorities for action
- builds consensus around the work
- helps to clarify responsibilities and funding priorities
NatureScot coordinates the Conservation Action Plan, which is owned by the Scottish Wildcat Conservation Action Group (SWCAG). Other experts in wildcat conservation also provided input to the plan’s development.
