Jn July, we had plesiure to announce that female lynx- Gretta- became a mother. She gave birht only one female kitten. We had a great opportiunity to watched, how a small hairy cat turn into a pretty young female lynx. The Crayon- becouse she received the name, grew very fast and she need only a few month to be a full independent animal.
"The Return of Lynx to Northwestern Poland"
The project is implemented by the Western Pomeranian Nature Society together with the Mammal Research Institute of the Polish Acadamy of Sciences in Białowieża and the Cultural Center in Miroslawiec
This is the first lynx in this area! Lynx female were released to adaptation pen, where she will be training her abilitys. We hope that it will not last long, this individual has got the features necessary for survival, such as timidity and does not like human company (it means that animal will avoid us, which is extremely important for survival for these cats). Before releasing Moira, because that was the name of the cat, she received a telemetry collar, which we can keep track of the animal's actions. Keep your fingers crossed for her :)
Like in every month, we prepared a few curiosity about lynxes:
About lynx activity.
Lynxes, like other cats, are most often active at night. During the day they rest in their hiding places. Most often these are inaccessible places, between the forest thicket, invisible to foreign eyes. At night, they are looking for prey.
