Lynx are listed as Threatened by official Idaho classification and one of the goals of the Multi-species Baseline Initiative is to gather more information about species of greatest conservation need.

 

Learn more about the story behind the recent Lynx capture at the Spokesman Review.

If you'd like to learn even more, photos and details on the capture are also available on the Multi-species Baseline Initiative article.
