Mating season for lynxes comes in the winter, and females have just one small litter a year. Their mom remains with her young for around 12 months, during which time she teaches them how to hunt. After that, they tend to lead a solitary existence, hunting and living alone.
However, while the lynxes in Swan Valley might traverse the forest solo, they are not, strictly speaking, alone. Alongside other rare animals in the area, the lynxes have been part of an observation program for half a decade. During this time, researchers tracked the creatures’ activities using cameras and radio collars.
