Lynx and wolf population stable in Beskydy region

The number of wild lynx and wolves in the Beskydy forests on the eastern border between the Czech Republic and Slovakia remains stable, according to researchers drawing on the results of the latest winter surveys. They found the number of adult lynx at around 15 and the number of wolves at three, the same number as estimated during the previous count a year earlier. One bear also made sporadic visits from across the border in Slovakia. The number of lynx and wolves has been tracked in the area for at least the last 12 years.
