Under the European Commission call HORIZON-MSCA-2021, the Spanish researcher Dr Mariano Recio has been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship for the two-year research project LYNXONTHEMOVE at the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, where he will collaborate with his mentor Dr Miha Krofel from the Chair of Forest Health and Wildlife Management at the Department of Forestry and Renewable Forest Resources. As Dr Miha Krofel explained, “The project will focus on the movements of lynx that are released into a new environment after they have been translocated. In this way, we aim to increase the effectiveness of this conservation measure, which has been at the heart of many projects over recent decades to prevent the extinction of Europe’s largest and most endangered cat species.”
