C.1 Lynx Translocation From Slovakia


Posted - Dec 21, 2017

Live-capture and Translocation of Lynx From the Carpathian Population in Slovakia for Reinforcement of the Dinaric-SE Alpine Population This action, along with similar action in Romania, is an essential step for the reinforcement process, as it will provide the lynx that will be released in Slovenia and Croatia. In this way, inbreeding depression of the Dinaric population will be reduced, and the population will be saved from...

C.2 Lynx Translocation From Romania


Posted - Dec 21, 2017

Live-capture and Translocation of Lynx From the Carpathian Population in Romania for Reinforcement of the Dinaric-SE Alpine Population The goal of this action is to capture at least seven lynx from three selected areas in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains and translocate them to Slovenia and Croatia. Implementation of this activity will start at the very beginning of the project in 2017. The first task will be to purchase or...

Genetic Reinforcement of the Dinaric Lynx Population This action will improve the genetic outlook of the Dinaric lynx population and effectively save it from extinction. We will reinforce the Dinaric population by integrating 9 lynx into this region. We will consider integration of individual lynx as successful if the released animals survive at least one year after the release, establish a territory and find a mate. If a released...

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...

Surveillance and Directed Management of the Reinforcement Process The main goal of this action is to track the reinforcement process of the Dinaric-SE Alpine lynx population and provide up-to-date information to help better manage, direct, and maximize the effects of further reinforcement activities. Because lynx are territorial, selection of release sites must account for the current distribution and sex of resident animals to...
