His name is Doru

Posted - Apr 8, 2019

Last week the public had the opportunity to vote for the name of the lynx that was caught in Romania for the reinforcement process in Croatia. Nearly 1900 people left their vote through a poll published on Facebook – Croatian field blog. The results were clear – the name chosen for the lynx is Doru. The name “Doru” (from dor) derived from Romanian means “needing, longing”. If derived from “Tudor” it means ”leader” and if derived from Theodoros (greek) means ”gift from God”. We all think the name suits him well and we hope he will leave his genetic trace in the Dinarics. For now, Doru is still fine, waiting in its quarantine for the release that is approaching.
