The lynx seems to be relocating.
Beginning in February the World Wildlife Foundation will be bringing some of the Lynx population in Estonia over to Poland.
The Lynx population in Poland has been decreasing due to hunting and habitat loss which have reduced their numbers to around only 200!
The Eurasian lynx is now listed on the Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. This means that they are not threatened with extinction at the moment, but will be unless trade is controlled.
Pawel Sredzinski of the WWF explained, "the lynx's survival is at stake in Poland. With the transfer of animals from Estonia, we hope to repopulate the forests and prevent the species from extinction in the country."
We don't want any animals to become extinct. Let's work to help them all!
