No animal is safe in no country. Pray for these little guys to make it (and get the next poacher!)

To Jennifer G. Lynx are already in the area in Poland. There shouldn't be much effect on the ecosystem, since the lynx evolved there and the other wildlife are (hopefully) already in balance.

It's sad that we have to relocate animals from one place to another just to make up for population decrease caused by us. On the other hand, it's a good thing that we actually can do that. I sincerely hope this is gonna work.

I've lived in Estonia for 4 years now and have yet to see a lynx. I've seen plenty of foxes though :) They are so beautiful.
