Work to save the Critically Endangered Iberian lynx is showing results, with the birth of several litters of lynx cubs heralding the start of a successful season at Portugal's first breeding centre.
Set up by the Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e da Biodiversidade (ICNB), the breeding centre forms an important part of a larger EU project, involving Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and on ground partner Liga Para a Protecção Da Natureza (LPN).
The captive breeding programme works in conjunction with similar sites in Spain, to boost lynx numbers while maintaining the genetic diversity of the species.
