Return of the wildcat with Cath Jeffs

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

£3

Close up of wildcat face, with olive-green eyes and wide face, hiding in long grass

Join Cath Jeffs, the South West Wildcat Officer from the Devon Wildlife Trust, to find out about the project which is looking at the feasibility of reintroducing wildcats (also known as woodcats) to the South West. Historic evidence suggests the South West once supported a healthy wildcat population with stories of them living on Exmoor until the early 1900s so this is a good opportunity to find out more about these shy and elusive creatures.

The talk includes the opportunity for questions and discussion. Doors open at 19:00 for the talk to start at 19:30.

The talk usually finishes by 21:30. There is a break for refreshments.

We ask for an entry donation of £3 to cover the costs of the event with any surplus being used for North Devon-based conservation activities.
