One of the most important ways to save the Scottish Wildcat and protect them is to preserve their forest home.
This means that deforestation has to stop where these beautiful cats live. Deforestation to make way for wind farms in the Scottish highlands threatens the existence of Scottish Wildcats. Preserving our last remaining forests and ecosystems is not just essential for the survival of Scottish Wildcats, it is also essential for the survival for all species who rely on forests for their existence.
The world is in a 'Sixth Mass Extinction' event. We have a biodiversity crisis which is as important as climate change. For species like the Scottish Wildcat, it is our actions today which will either result in the Scottish Wildcats becoming extinct, or, making a comeback.
Other animals that have been in the same position as the Scottish Wildcat have been brought back from the brink of extinction. Hopefully, the Scottish Wildcat can also be brought back from the brink of extinction.
Scottish Wildcat Day is a day we can all help these beautiful cats and raise awareness about them.
