Scottish wildcats are a European Protected Species. A sharing Good Practice event, hosted in the SNH offices at Battleby took place on Friday 24 February. This was a specialist event for all those whose activities in developments and land management may impact on wildcat habitat; for example, local authority planners, forest and other land managers, woodland officers from agencies and NGOs, forestry and agriculture agents, developers and ecological consultants.
The event looked at the actions required and the issues to be considered to ensure all development/forestry is conducted in a legal manner.Organised in partnership with Scottish Wildcat Action, SNH, Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Land & Estates the day proved a huge success with well over 80 people attending.
Presentations from the day will be available on the SNH Sharing Good Practice website
