In 2023, Saving Wildcats carried out the first ever releases of captive bred wildcats in Britain, into the Cairngorms National Park. Hear from Helena Parsons, Saving Wildcats Outreach and Engagement Manager about how the project has progressed, and the community outreach work that was needed to ensure the success of the releases. 

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) has been involved with Scottish wildcat conservation for over 10 years and continues to play a critical role in the long-term recovery efforts of this iconic species. Working together with project partners, the UK’s captive breeding holders for wildcats, and international specialists in species recovery, Saving Wildcats is the greatest hope for wildcats in Scotland. 

Tickets are free of charge, with the option to donate to the project. 

You will receive details for joining the online zoom event in due course after selecting your tickets.
