This map application shows photos of animals documented as a part of the 3Lynx Project, Trans-Lynx Project and Luchsprojekt Osterreich Nordwest in monitored areas of the Bohemian Forest Mts. region, in Czech Republic, Bavaria and Austria. The aim of this monitoring is primarily to document the presence of lynx in the given areas; nevertheless we record a range of other species of animals living in the given area. The presented photos are a selection of the best and most interesting photos and show all the mammal species which have been documented here. Details on the methods of lynx monitoring within the Trans-Lynx project are available here and here, for details on Luchsprojekt Osterreich Nordwest please visit luchs.boehmerwaldnatur.at.
The map can show the monitored areas (so-called squares) where the photomonitoring was carried out. Clicking on a given square will reveal photos of the documented animal species.
The map can also filter and show the areas according to the documented animal species. Selecting a given species in the left menu will show you the squares where this species was photographed and after clicking on the given square the photos of the selected species will appear.
As the lynx population is rather limited, its survival in our country is influenced by negative factors to a large degree, such as collisions with traffic and interruptions of migration corridors connecting individual populations of the species. Unless our lynx population is connected to the lynx populations of the neighbouring states, the long-term survival of this species is threatened. That is why our map shows the main migration corridors connecting the areas with lynx presence in our country. The migration corridors were defined, based on the results of the Science and Research Grant of the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic VaV-SP/2d436/08 “Evaluation of the migration permeability of the landscape for large mammals and proposal of protective and optimization measures” (elaborated by VÚKOZ, AOPK ČR and Evernia s.r.o.), in the Trans-Lynx Project.

Preparation and running of the map application are financed from the programme Ciel 3 Czech Republic – Bavaria 2007 – 2013 and the Ministry of Environment as part of the Trans-Lynx Project.
In years 2017-2020 the map application is supported by the Interreg Central Europe and the Ministry of Environment as part of the 3Lynx project.
