How Goru got his name

Posted - Feb 22, 2019

It’s been a week now, since we captured our first lynx in Romania. Goru is exploring his temporary home, eats and sleeps most of the time. The name Goru was given to him by our colleague Teresa. She was checking the box trap on the day when Goru was captured. She named him after a mountain peak Goru (1785 m) inside the Natural Park Putna Vrancea where the lynx was caught. It is a small nature reserve, a remote, beautiful and very savage area, same as our first lynx.
