This estimation of minimum population size does not include lynxes that were released in Croatia within LIFE Lynx project. Out of seven lynxes released in Croatia and Slovenia in 2019 and 2020, two males – Alojzije and Boris, established their territories in Croatia.
A total of 902 records of lynx presence were collected in Croatia in the period from 1st of May 2018 until 30th of April 2020 (Table 1). Out of those, 92.7% of observations were categorized as C1, 2.8% as C2 and 4.5% as C3.
Permanent lynx presence was confirmed in Primorsko – Goranska and Ličko – Senjska county, in south part of Karlovac county and north-eastern part of Zadar county on the total surface of 7100 km2. Areas of occasional presence were not registered according to the used methodology, while on the surface of 1300 km2 lynx signs of presence were recorded as C3 observations, i.e. those which could not be verified. Those include Pelješac peninsula, then mountains Biokovo and Dinara, which are apart from the core of the permanent distribution range in Croatia but are bordering to lynx distribution area in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Anonymous 2018).
