LIFE Lynx Aims


  • The project aims to save the Dinaric-SE Alpine lynx population from extinction by improving the genetic and demographic outlook of this population by directly increasing population viability through reinforcement with 9 lynx, and to safeguard the population well into the 21st century.
  • Conservation management will be developed at the transboundary level. We will collaborate across all EU countries sharing this population to develop and implement a standardized and systematic approach to ensure long-term viability of the reinforced population.
  • We wish to improve population connectivity for lynx through increasing the chances of natural gene flow by creating a population “stepping stone” through the release of 5 lynx in the south-eastern Alps.
