I watched this documentary last night.
The Tigers of Scotland is a feature length (60 minutes) documentary, narrated by Iain Glen, about the Scottish Wildcat, the only big cat in the UK and one of the rarest mammals in the world that are nearly extinct.
The Scottish wildcat at first sight looks like a domesticated cat, but in reality they’re not. There are several differences, and one of them is that these cats are the muses behind Celtic legends and myths.
This documentary is truly of environmental education, the scientists and naturalists take the viewer on a step-by-step process of everything conservation and species re-introduction involves, as well as providing important context about the history of deforestation and “predator control” dating back over 1000 years in the UK.
Elephants, rhinos, bees, blue wales, gorillas, orangutans,Tasmanian devils, tigers, sea turtles (soon polar bears) and many more are part of the list of endangered species.
But not many are aware of elusive creatures such as the Scottish wildcat.
An important documentary and wake up call for humans before it’s too late.
