Orkney Native Wildlife Project
Stoats were first seen in Orkney in 2010 and since then the population has become fully established. They are now widely distributed throughout Mainland Orkney, Burray and South Ronaldsay.
Stoats are accomplished predators and pose a very serious threat to Orkney's wildlife, including the native Orkney vole, hen harrier, short-eared owl and ground nesting birds.
Our aim is to develop a project to safeguard Orkney's ecology by removing stoats, and to prevent the stoat population from spreading to Orkney's other islands.
