For the first time since centuries in the Netherlands wildcats have been born in the wild. ARK Nature investigates the return of this rare animal. During the study this year we found at least five different wildcats, two of the animals were born here. The return of the wildcat happens with impressive speed.

The wildcat research was in the Vijlenerbos nature reserve and elsewhere in Limburg province.
