Establishing lynx populations in cultural landscapes (preliminary study)
Sustaining species diversity: Reintroducing and protecting highly endangered plants and animals
09/2007 – 10/2008 (preliminary study)
The objective of this project is to develop and try out ways of promoting the establishment and spread of lynx populations in Germany. The work is to be performed in a coordinated network of regional sub-projects.
In a preliminary study, data is collated and analysed on the status of lynx populations and lynx management in the German Länder and neighbouring countries. The preliminary study is thus a key part of the project as a whole, providing information needed for subsequent decisions on what action is to be taken and where, including on the regions best suited for trials focusing on specific issues.
