The Lynx and Us

28 June 2018, Edinburgh

June saw CIEEM Scotland members (as well as a large, and very welcome, contingent of non-members) treated to a fascinating and informative talk about one of Europe’s least well-known predators. Dr David Hetherington covered a great range of  topics ranging from species biology and ecology, to the history of the species in the UK, to how the species interacts with and comes into conflict with humans in other parts of its range; some of which it has been reintroduced to, and in some of which it has always been present. The talk was illustrated by some outstanding photographs, and augmented with a very interesting Q&A session after the talk.

The first in a series of species specific “returning to the wild” seminars put on to by the Scottish Geographic Section, this was our best attended event this year. We hope to build on the success with subsequent events. Keep an eye on the events pages for details of the next ones…
