Earth Day 2019: Protect Our Species

The Tigers of Scotland is a feature length (63 minutes) documentary by Wild Films Ltd and narrated by Iain Glen. It focuses on the fragile existence of Scottish Wildcats, their status and what conservation efforts are being undertaken to ensure their survival. Bringing knowledge of their existence and awareness of their status to a wider audience is crucial to preventing their extinction. - Wild Films

Red squirrels were once common throughout the UK. Tragically, they are now one of our rarest mammals and are missing from most of the areas where they once lived.

There are many forests in the north-west Highlands that could support red squirrels, but as they can't cross open ground, they can't get there without our help.

Our Red Squirrel Project will move small numbers of red squirrels from areas where they are thriving, and create ten new populations, free from grey squirrels and other threats. - Trees for Life

Extraordinary footage from an investigation carried out by OneKind, League Against Cruel Sports and Lush has revealed the brutal, military style mass killing of Scotland’s mountain hares on grouse moors. Campaigners supported by Chris Packham are calling on the Scottish Government to take immediate action and end the killing. - Chris Packham
