The Iberian Lynx is the world's most critically endangered feline, with only 100-200 individuals remaining alive.
Efforts are underway to help save these cats, and you can help make a difference in their survival.
Let's try to prevent the tragic extinction of these cats.
The Iberian Lynx, also known as the Spanish Lynx, is the world's most critically endangered feline, with only 100-200 individuals remaining. As private owners we share a responsibility to help protect the wild cousins of our beloved cats, and to use our knowledge to help in whatever way we can.
We are often led to believe that zoos are doing everything they can to ensure the survival of endangered species; unfortunately that is not always the case, especially with felines that are not a big draw to the public. The zoo system has failed the Iberian Lynx; can we as private owners and members of the public now come to the rescue in the 11th hour? I hope so.
