Title: Linx news 2017 (Lynx Pardinus)
Post by: Clive on April 04, 2017, 20:00 PM
Thought I would create a topic about 2017 news for the Iberian lynx... To start off, there is a great info sheet at El Pais (In spanish)...

"La situación del lince ibérico"

The drawings and maps are really good, a lot of info in one page :)

Good news also from Portugal with 15 cubs so far this year....

This year 15 cubs were born in the Portuguese breeding centre for the Iberian-lynx, in Silves (Algarve), five more than last year, was revealed last Tuesday.  Here you can learn about the stories behind some of the mothers of this seventh season of Iberian lynx breeding in captivity in Portugal..

I wonder if the Lynx, that made it to Granada in 2015 is still around?

Devasting fire in the area around Doñana national park has threatened the linx breeding centre near Matalascañas and with no time at all as the fire was moving so fast the people in charge decided to open the gates to the enclosures and let the captive linx out to fend for themselves. A dozen or so were captured and transported away (one is said to have died from shock) I hope that the others have survived...

A lynx conservation center situated in the park was evacuated as well. Workers at El Acebuche captive breeding center were able to take 14 specimens with them, including five cubs, and released 13 others into the wild before vacating the building. On Sunday night, the Spanish Environment Ministry told the news agency Efe that the animals had been relocated, without specifying where.

But one female named Homer died as a result of stress during her capture and transportation away from the breeding center.
