Clawing Back From Extinction: The Struggle Of The Iberian Lynx
If I know one thing about my readers it’s that they have an abiding love of nature. Over the last year we’ve looked at all sorts of animals,.and in particular focused on animals that, for whatever reason, have found themselves on the edge of extinction. Some of these creatures have managed to recover but most are still very much at risk. Such is the case with the Iberian lynx who’s total worldwide population was only about 100 in 2002.
The lynx has come a long way since then but is still very endangered. Conservation efforts managed to raise the population to 326 by 2012. As of 2015 their numbers were estimated at 404 (over 4 times their population just 13 years ago). Conservation practices can work but it’s always an uphill battle.
If you’d like to help the restoration of the Iberian Lynx I’d urge you to support the WWF in their endeavors. You can learn more about the lynx and even make a donation here.
