    About This Project

    The dwindling European wildcat population of Iberia is increasingly threatened by interbreeding and infectious disease transmission from domestic cats. We will collect data on pathogen prevalence, hybridisation and contact patterns between wildcats and domestic cats, to try to understand how disease circulates between the two species. We aim to unveil the complex epidemiology of the wildcat-domestic cat interface and, with our results, to inform European wildcat conservation.
