The wild population of Iberian lynx has increased this year by 12 percent, reaching the 253 specimens, as highlighted today by the Minister of Environment Andalusia, José Juan Díaz Trillo, at the opening of IV International Seminar on the Iberian lynx.
According to the latest census conducted in nature, not yet final, the number of surviving Iberian lynx in Sierra Morena and Doñana would have increased this year in 28 specimens, an increase that includes seven lynx breeding program in captivity is released experimental Guadalmellato area (Córdoba).
The Doñana population would have increased to 73 copies, ten more than in 2009 - and the Sierra Morena to 180 individuals, 18 more than the existing ones last year, in addition to the seven copies of captive breeding Guadalmellato released.
Trillo Diaz stressed that these figures represent an increase of almost 150 percent over the Iberian lynx population surviving in 2002 and strengthen a progressive recovery of the most endangered cat species on the planet, thanks to the efforts of the Board Andalusia has for decades.
The director has described these data Andalusian "very encouraging", has clarified that, despite this, one should not fall into "complacency" and reiterated the "strong and solid commitment" to the Junta de Andalucía to the conservation of lynx Andalusian shown in the budgets for 2011 in which, he said, "not an inch will reduce our financial commitment, despite the two years we have been in severe economic crisis."
He also stressed that this year have been recorded breeding females and thirteen eight puppies in 2009 and that the area now occupied by the cat three times that existed in 2002.
"This space for the Lynx won we won also for the ecological health of these territories and the amount of life that produces the lynx," he underlined.
He recalled that this effort of the Government of Andalusia, two programs supported by the EU LIFE granted in the last decade, will continue with a third project, as requested, effective through 2016, including Portugal, Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha and Murcia , which will give a real character "Iberian" the conservation of this species.
Deplored the criticism of these programs to conserve endangered species and has adds: "I do not have work more productively and with greater economic and social returns to recover a species."
In this Fourth International Seminar on the Iberian lynx, which will close tomorrow, attended by more than a hundred experts who will analyze the work done with this species and will guide future action to preserve it.
One of the critical analysis of this seminar is the first release on the lynx born in captivity in nature to colonize new territories, initially planned for this year. EFE
