Drimnin Village Hall Spring Talk

What is a Wildcat and Are There Any Left?
Dr Keri Langridge is a Project Officer for ‘Scottish Wildcat Action’, a National conservation project involving 22 partner organisations. Keri will talk about the current status of wildcat conservation in Scotland, and her field work in Morvern over the past three years, which (with the help of local volunteers) has included the largest ever trail-camera survey of the peninsula, trapping feral and low-scoring hybrid cats for neuter-vaccinate-return, and trapping potential ‘wildcats’ for sampling and GPS collaring. Come and learn how to set up a camera trap in your own garden, estimate how ‘hybridised’ a cat might be from its coat markings, and identify our own Morvern ‘wildcats’! Everyone welcome
