Lynx distribution in the Alps and northern Dinaric Mountains

In the frame of the SCALP programme, lynx experts from France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia combine their data to produce a standardized lynx distribution map. More information about SCALP can be found under  

In 3Lynx, we are looking specific on Dinaric and South-East Alpen populations and we will be able to produce more accurate data about this regions.  

Special events 2016:

  • Lynx from north-eastern Switzerland have crossed the Rhine valley and are spreading into Liechtenstein and Vorarlberg.
  • This is the second year with reported reproduction from the French Alps.
