Thuringia: young lynx spotted near Nordhausen

Nordhausen/Jena (dpa/th) - The lynx in the southern Harz has offspring. A wildlife camera documented a female lynx accompanied by a young animal near Nordhausen, the nature conservation organization Nabu Thuringia announced on Tuesday in Jena. The two strictly protected animals were sighted in the first lynx forest awarded by Nabu, explained project coordinator Silvester Tamás. The recordings that have now been evaluated came from the first week of August.

In the project, the forest owner received special camera traps from the nature conservation organization, which he set up in places in his forest that were inaccessible to humans. A lynx and wildcats were already detected in the area in 2021.

In the lynx forest campaign, up to three selected forests in Thuringia are symbolically awarded each year, in which forest owners are exemplary in their efforts to protect nature and habitats, Nabu explained. Such forest areas can serve lynx as a potential retreat, but also as a nursery.

After being exterminated in many parts of Europe, the lynx is only very hesitantly spreading again. According to Nabu, fewer than ten animals have been sighted in Thuringia so far. At the beginning of the year, a dead lynx was found on a railway line near Buttstädt (Sömmerda district).
