Excursion with a Slovenian NGO

Posted - Jul 2, 2021

At the beginning of summer, we took a Slovenian NGO ZaŽivali! to an excursion to a typical habitat of lynx and other large carnivores. On the way to the top of the Mokrc Mountain, we stopped at the landscape features, which could be used by lynx for passage, resting or marking, such as bigger rocks, fallen trees and forest roads. We explained how researchers take advantage of these elements to study lynx and to monitor the lynx population. Basic research equipment was also shown, including the telemetry collar and a camera trap. The participants of the trip took their experience home to many different parts of Slovenia.
