Lynx population saved from extinction thanks to Life Lynx project

Ljubljana, 20 March - In the nearly seven years of the Life Lynx project, the lynx in Slovenia has been saved from extinction, as a small population of some 20 adult animals mated among themselves. The lynx population now numbers around 50 adult animals, which bodes well for the future of the species in the Slovenian Alps and the Dinaric Alps.
