We are delighted to announce the birth of a rare Scottish Wildcat kitten here at Five Sisters Zoo!

Scottish Wildcats form one of the most endangered cat populations in the world and were declared functionally extinct in the wild back in 2018. The breeding programme that we are proud to be part of is a lifeline for this fragile population and without help from conservationists and zoos, would be dangerously close to disappearing completely.

The kitten was born to parents Morag and Fletcher but given their elusive nature, has only been seen a handful of times.
