National Geographic (2006)–The Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) is on the brink of extinction. These majestic predators, the rarest wildcats in the world, are top of the food chain in a land where hungry eyes are always watching. The Iberian lynx was once a common sight across Spain, Portugal and southern France.
Now, only a handful are left in the wild, the victims of man’s thoughtless management of their environment, a place that exposes them to pesticides, speeding automobiles, itchy trigger fingers, rapacious land grabbers and water poachers. Does the Iberian lynx stand a chance of survival? This 50-minute video, the story of two female lynxes–one mountain, one wetland–makes the case.
