Lynx population plummets in Andalucia due to budget cutbacks

The population of wild lynxes is plummeting, official data show, and budget cutbacks are the reason, claims a noted biologist who has just quit the Lynx programme after 12 years. José María Gil-Sánchez quit the Lynx programme in December and says it’s doomed, due to budget cutbacks and political infighting. He claims to have been forced out of the programme due to a difference of opinion with his political bosses.
