Our Endangered European Carnivores “Iberian Lynx” Part 2 of 5

The world most endangered cat is a European Tiger called the Iberian Lynx. http://naturescrusaders.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/iberian_lynx_cubs_1.jpgAncient times have siad that the Lynx is a mysterious cat with supernatural powers. There are only about 100 of these beautiful creatures left and less than a dozen that are breeding females. The lynx prey most on rabbits and with the evolution of several viruses, the destruction of its prey and habitat are it’s largest threat. Man has also made their own contribution to the cats decline. They are sometimes killed by traps set for rabbits, hit by cars as new roads are built, and of course illegal hunting. If nothing is done, the Iberian Lynx with likely be extinct in 10-20 years, but it could be a soon a 5 years. A breeding program and revival of the rabbit population must be put into affect as quickly as possible to help to restore the population.

    WAU Portugal would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who had supported this fund raising. We had collected 250€ and sent it to the SOS Lynx. Although we never got back any answer, not even a thank you.

    Either way it was a great thing to do… I guess good manners and a simple thank you are not part of our society anymore…
