C.4 SE Alpine “Stepping Stone”

Posted - Dec 21, 2017


Establishment of a Population “Stepping Stone” in the SE Alpine Area

The goal of this action is to create an effective population “stepping stone” between the Dinaric and Alpine lynx sub-populations by releasing five lynx into this intermediate unoccupied habitat at the junction of SE Alps and the northernmost edge of Dinaric Mountains. This will create a connected Dinaric-SE Alpine population and facilitate dispersal and subsequent population-level connectivity of these currently isolated lynx sub-populations.
