Abstract

England contains extensive areas of beautiful and wild natural landscapes of which the English public are justifiably proud. A highly controlled and scientific trial reintroduction of Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) (herein referred to as lynx) to a specifically selected wild area of England is the first step in a process that could see the lynx return to the nation after 1300 years of absence – a vital part of England's natural heritage. This document represents the first stage in the consultation of the national stakeholders in a trial reintroduction of lynx to England (the "Project"). The Project will bring millions of pounds of economic benefits to the English economy, improve the health of natural environments in England and, above all else, will be a symbol for the pride that the English public have in their nation's wild places. We are keen to understand your thoughts as our proposals develop over the coming months.
