Lynx rewilding news

Apparently, the recent work towards lynx rewilding in the Kielder Forest in Northumberland could lead to them being there by early 2018!  Lynx have not been in Britain since 650AD, 1342 years ago.  The thought is that as well as reducing the deer numbers that eat the vegetation, it will also bring tourists to the area in hope of seeing these predators.  These cats are thought to have a positive affect on the environment.  I hope that they’re there by next year!
