The second Wildcat Forum was held on the 9th November and was attended by c. 60 people from partner organisations and those with a keen interest in wildcat conservation. The forum sought to provide an update on progress made.
The day consisted of a number of short presentations, including one by Tony Rivas from El Acebuche Iberian Lynx Breeding Centre, Spain who delivered a fascinating talk on the conservation effort being undertaken to save the world’s most endangered feline species. Conservation measures for this species have seen the population rise from 100 individuals to above 400. Both inspirational and aspirational, parallels could be made to the Scottish Wildcat Action project.
