Far back in the history of Scotland, clans formed together under the image of the wildcat and fought wars for the independence of the land. Today less than 400 Scottish wildcats remain in the wild and the extinction of Britain's last large mammal predator could come within the next decade. Last Of The Scottish Wildcats is the first film to capture rare footage of these unique creatures in their wild habitat and to fully investigate the threats facing their future through interviews with the people dedicated to saving Britain's last wild feline. The Scottish wildcat is Britain's very own critically endangered wild feline with less than 400 individuals left in the wild. Whilst Government is working out what to do about the problem an unexpected mixture of film-makers, writers, sculptors and photographers, united by their interest in the species, have started working towards its conservation. "Public awareness is so essential," explains director/producer Steve Piper, "the greatest threat to the wildcat is that very few people outside of the Highlands realise they're even there, and only handfuls of them fully understand the threats to the wildcat or how to help. Fortunately, communication is exactly what creative artists spend their whole life doing."
