Historically found in as many as 25 U.S. states, the Canada lynx now resides in only 8.

Spring has arrived here in interior Alaska and soon female lynx will be giving birth. Each spring we briefly visit den sites to document reproduction and collect other important information for our study. Over the next couple months we will update you on what we discover. #canadalynx#kittens#wildlifebiology#science#alaska#thelynxproject @drewtrush @boonesmithwc @dashfeier
Gouache on found 1960s geological survey map paper. The TransMountain pipeline runs through Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, critical habitat for the endangered Canada Lynx. I’ve painted it in in red, right next to the blue Athabasca River, critical habitat for the endangered Whooping Crane. ⠀
The pipeline was built to cover increasing demand for oil in BC and parts of Asia, as well as for the US military during the Korean War. There have been 82 reported spills/leaks, and many others “too minor to report.” They are beginning an expansion project this spring and charging oil producers through the roof for transport fees in the meantime. ⠀
I think there will be a show in this vein someday, and perhaps prints, and definitely some profits for the preservation of the fucking cranes and lynx, like the coolest animals ever. I recommend YouTube vids of both.
Trapping continues to be one of the greatest threats for the Lynx, and as Lynx are easily trapped, when done during times of low numbers it makes recovery of the population extremely difficult. As is with every other feline population, these too face habitat loss due to destruction by humans. The black tufts of hair at the tops of their ears serve to enhance their already phenomenal hearing. #canadalynx#lynx#conservation#preservation#endangered#zoolife
Protected under the Endangered Species Act as a threatened species, the Canada Lynx continues to face habitat destruction due to logging, new roads, and mining.

Did you know the Canada Lynx makes a variety of sounds or vocalizations which are similar to a domestic cat. They purr, meow, hiss, growl and shriek to show different emotions and during mating season.
