English-born Scottish wildcat moves north in bid to save species

Good News Notes: 

The eight-month-old male wildcat is one of a litter of four kittens bred at the Wildwood Trust centre in Kent.

He underwent thorough health checks ahead of being selected for a new conservation programme that aims to reintroduce the critically endangered animals back into the wild after being declared “functionally extinct”.

He has now travelled hundreds of miles to a new home at the Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie.”
