The Iberian lynx population reaches 1,000 in Spain

According to the last census of Iberian lynx, corresponding to the year 2020, the population of these animals in Spain has exceeded a thousand specimens. The data is encouraging and positive. Its population has multiplied by 10 in just 20 years, going from just 94 lynxes in 2002 to 1,111 in 2020. It is a great success for conservation in Spain and in the world. Few species are capable of escaping from such a critical situation as the Iberian lynx has been. This great advance responds to the continuous and joint work of more than 20 administrations and organizations, as well as many individuals, and where WWF has worked tirelessly in the last 20 years with a very prominent role.
