Wildcat Platform


 
The Wildcat Platform is a co-operation between different Austrian organisations committed to the protection and the promotion of wildcats in Austria. Its duty is to coordinate any Austrian activities observed by the National Park Thayatal and the Coordination and Wildcat Reporting Office of the NATURSCHUTZBUND Austria (Nature Protection Society of Austria).
It started with a research project of the National Park Thayatal in which the occurrence of wildcats could be established several times. Based on this, the Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union Austria mandated, with the support of Austrian Federal Forests 2007/08, a study of the potential habitats of wildcats and initiated the Wildcat Species Conservation Project.

In 2008, the NATURSCHUTZBUND organized a first international wildcat conference in Wels. After many workshops, the Wildcat Platform could be created at the beginning of 2009. That year, the Species Conservation Project was also integrated into the campaign "vielfaltleben” (diversity of life) and the Wildcat Action Plan was developed in cooperation with the Platform and completed in February 2010.
Wildcat experts from Austria and abroad met for the first time on 30/9/2008 to consult about the situation of wildcats in Austria.
