Of Lynx, Traps, and Lawsuits: The Rocky Road to Enlightened Wildlife Conservation

The lynx is one of the most at-risk carnivores in the United States. South of the US-Canada border, this elusive species’ population may be as low as a few hundred individuals. In 2000, the federal government acted by listing it as threatened in portions of the US, under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Steps to recover lynx have included reintroduction.
