Lynx Reintroduction: Get Involved
We're often asked "How can I help?" or "How can I get involved?" As we work towards a possible reintroduction of lynx to the UK all kinds of things will come up, and there are already lots of things you can do to help make our shared dream, of seeing lynx living wild in the UK again, a reality.
The Lynx Trust consists of a small management team and a number of experts, all of whom provide their services almost exclusively on a volunteer basis. Last year we spent only £4,500 on our work but achieved a huge amount, publishing detailed research, consulting with a comprehensive range of national stakeholders, identifying an ideal release site area and launching an extensive local consultation there.
Nevertheless, even with the team's endless generosity and commitment, we desperately need funding.

In the past several members of the public have offered to conduct fundraising on our behalf, which has made an incredible difference to our team's work.
