The Scottish Mink Initiative

The Scottish Mink Initiative is a community based project which works with local communities, wildlife and fisheries managers, landowners, schools, householders and local interest groups. The Initiative aims to safeguard local businesses and livelihoods which are dependent on wildlife tourism, angling and shooting.

Phase 1 saw the successful transfer of the long term mink monitoring and control programme to ten fisheries trusts across the Scottish Mink Initiative work area. The Scottish Mink Initiative have ambitious plans to eradicate breeding American mink from north Scotland. Please see link for further information, how to volunteer or report a mink sighting.
