About this book

Language: Spanish

The Iberian lynx is the most threatened feline in the world. After decades of political disagreements, scientific disputes, ecological misdemeanors and much squandered money, the only feline native to the Iberian Peninsula is on the brink of extinction. Scarcely 100 cats survive, confined to only two sustainable communities.

For many, the Iberian lynx is on a collision course that will end with its extinction. But various conservation efforts give reason for hope: the lynx's natural habitat has been improved, the rabbit populations in the eastern Sierra Morena and Donana have grown, and the breeding programs have resulted in several successful births in captivity. The Iberian lynx is desperately clutching to life in the shadow of its imminent extinction. A crisis of this magnitude has not been seen since the last feline species became extinct 5000 years ago.
