Next winter, it will do this in the Bavarian Forest and Sumava National Parks, a project with so-called photo traps at around 60 seats, said Marco Heurich by the research department of the Bavarian Forest National Park Administration in Grafenau. Overall, the rare big cats are to be observed on a roughly 900-square-kilometer area.

Last winter, scientists have already gone on the Bavarian side on photo-stalking. At that time, were set up in the national park at 28 camera sites. This could be shown that in Germany's oldest national park at least eight lynx, including three juveniles live. The lynx experts can distinguish the animals from the stains on the fur. To be installed at each site, each with two cameras, so that the lynx may be taken by both sides.

The automatic camera set up to work with infrared technology and respond to body heat from passing by living organisms. Of course, then tap not only lynx in the photo trap. Last winter, are also involved wild boar, roe deer, rabbits, hedgehogs and marten in the photo shoot. The researchers rely on the cameras in the cold season, because then the young lynx their first major excursions and is also mating season.

For several years in the Lower Park lynx also provided with a Sendehalsband to precisely control the wildlife habitat to be. Currently there are three big cats in the region have such a channel. In addition, photo traps will be set up in another project outside the specially protected national parks.
