Although listed among the two most widespread felid species in Turkey, the information about the status and ecology of Eurasian lynx is still lacking. Only recently, researchers could collect hard evidence on the occurrence of the species and are trying to figure out important parameters such as its prey preferences and density. Conflict for common prey source in primary lynx habitats is a serious threat for the wellbeing of the species.
This project aims to reveal the level of conflict between hunters and lynx and propose solutions for conflict mitigation to the wildlife authorities based on the ecology and distribution of the species in a pilot study area in north-western Turkey.
