About the project
The closure of the lynx carcass submission project in 2016, resulted in a loss of information about our predator populations. In order to compensate for this, we intend to collect lynx observations by way of citizen scientists!
Carcass data was used to infer lynx:
- Act as a replacement project in lieu of the lynx carcass program closure
- Engage with the general public, outdoorsmen, hunters and trappers, and citizen scientists
- Strengthen our understanding of their distribution and habitat associations
