Mink initiative

Controlling mink for Water Vole conservation.

Scottish Mink Initiative is a community based Initiative aiming to protect native wildlife by removing breeding American mink from north Scotland and the Highlands.

The Initiative is part of the Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland’s Biosecurity and Invasive Non Native Species Programme, implementing a large scale strategic approach to American mink control, as recommended by Scottish Natural Heritage through the Species Action Framework.
