Iberian lynx population needs to triple

The population of the Iberian lynx needs to increase threefold to ensure its survival according to American cat expert Melody Roelke. Roelke believes that the lynx’s situation in less critical than that of the Florida panther which in the 1990s was down to just 30 pairs, but with transfers has managed to double its numbers and reach an acceptable genetic diversity, and as result she fully supports the transfer of lynx from Sierra Morena to Doñana.
