Two lynxes released into the wild in Gorenjska

By: P.T., STA

Two lynxes, a male and a female, were released into the wild on Jelovica Plateau a part of efforts to reintroduce the species to north-western Slovenia after a successful rejuvenation of the lynx population in south Slovenia.

Zois and Aida were translocated from Romania and will help improve the long-term prospects of the Dinaric-Alpine lynx population, which had been severely inbred and on the verge of extinction not long ago. On Wednesday, three more will be released into the Triglav National Park, as part of LIFE Lynx, an EU-funded project aimed at preserving the Dinaric-Alpine lynx population.
