Abstract

Scotland contains the most beautiful and wild natural landscapes in the United Kingdom, of which the Scottish 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 Scotland 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 Scotland's natural heritage. This document represents the first stage in the consultation of the national stakeholders in a trial reintroduction of lynx to Scotland (the "Project"). The Project will bring millions of pounds of economic benefits to the Scottish economy, improve the health of natural environments in Scotland and, above all else, will be a symbol for the pride that the Scottish public have in their nation's wild places. We are keen to understand your thoughts as our proposals develop over the coming months.
