Rare wildcat kittens born at Highlands field centre
  • Thanks to the Scottish Wildcat Action project, two females of a “functionally extinct” breed have been born.
  • They’re a few weeks old, and already exploring their enclosure at the Aigas Field Centre in Scotland.
  • In the future these wildcats might be released into the wild, but certain threats to the species still need to be overcome.
  • The Scottish wildcat population has diminished due to breeding with domestic cats, loss of habitat, and disease.
