Wildcat One management consultants
Very special thanks go to Pat Tomlin and all at Wildcat One management consultancy in Edinburgh; after interviewing the company about their wildlife sponsorships for the documentary we came across a financial shortfall and asked them if they could help with finishing funds, true to form they came to the rescue and provided us with all of the remaining funds we needed to complete the film; THANK YOU!

LPS Creative Media
More thanks to Andy Langley and all at production company LPS Creative Media for helping us through the complications of DVD duplication, menus, encoding and so on, it would have been a real headache without your help; THANK YOU!

Wildcat Haven
The film originally donated a share of profits to the Scottish Wildcat Association, which has since morphed into the Wildcat Haven conservation project in the West Highlands, it's an amazing project well worth your support.
