    Greetings Pedro and welcome to zoo chat. You say that you are involved in increasing numbers of Iberian lynx, does this mean you are involved in captive breeding or is it more in-situ conservation that you're involved in.

    All in with, the only time when we had three animals in captivity is when we found a group of cubs dangerously close to a populated area and without mom, we took them in for a fee months made sure they were healthy and released in a safe mountain range!!

    Thanks for asking Ned
