The push to reintroduce the now extinct Lynx back into Britian is moving forward. Having been extinct for around 1300 years the plan to introduce them back into selected areas is almost certainly a controversial one. There would be many who would undoubtedly oppose the idea out of fear and ignorance. Those who support the reintroduction of the wolf into areas of America and seen the enormous benefits it has had can testify to the importance of top predators being part of the landscape in terms of biodiversity. The lynx reintroduction can surely only be a positive move in the right direction since it is man that wiped them out of Britian in the first place. I wonder if anyone has put forward the idea of reintroducing the wolf since it has also been wiped out of Britian too. Somehow I think that idea would be met with hostile opposition.
