"Lynx-spotting has become a tourist attraction in the area; as well as creating 31 full-time jobs, forestry work carried out under the programme has provided much-needed work for hundreds of small businesses in the area."

Finally people are realizing that tourism can help save a species and provide for the local economy.

Noted. It's off to a good start - if the yo-yos can be kept from killing them.
