Another lynx joined Goru at the quarantine!

Posted - Mar 1, 2019

Shortly after catching the first lynx in Vrancea Mountains, another lynx joined Goru at the ACDB quarantine center. This male, about 4 years old, was captured on February 27, in the Subcarpathians area, within Pralea hunting unit, managed by our partner RNP Romsilva.

This time, Adrian Titianu and Cătălin Ghionoiu from Direcția Silvică Bacău helped the ACDB-LIFE Lynx project team. Without them, we would have not been able to monitor the area and celebrate this new capture. Activities have been implemented in an area where the care for wildlife is exemplary, facilitating the maintenance of viable populations. We thank the entire team of foresters and specialists who contributed to the implementation of the LIFE Lynx project’s action. The species’ future will be build in Europe gradually, through a joint effort that we all should be proud of. Do you wander how the lynx was captured? Here you can find the video.
