In 2002, only two populations of Iberian Lynx existed - one in Andújar–Cardeña, in Eastern Sierra Morena, and one in Doñana, Southern Spain) totalling fewer than 100 individuals (Guzmán et al., 2004). The latest figures for the population of Iberian Lynx today is more than 500 individuals and the population has expanded in range too. Thanks mostly to the good work of a LIFE Project IberLince and a number of re-introductions.
Sadly, many animals still get killed on roads as they expand in distribution and funding for this particular project has now come to an end, so the species still isn't safe yet.......
