New Proposal For Canada Lynx Habitat
"We need to see critical habitat taken seriously in the southern Rockies."
- Joshua Pollock, Center for Native Ecosystems conservation director
Washington, D.C., USA - Federal wildlife managers have dramatically increased the amount of land they want to designate as critical habitat for the Canada lynx, a threatened species.
That's more than 20 times the 1,841 square miles in three states the agency designated in late 2006.
