Public Survey Results

In early March we launched a national survey to gather the opinions of people across the UK on lynx reintroduction and rewilding generally.

Thanks to huge support in the media and on social networks we received an incredible amount of feedback from over 9000 respondents, showing support for a trial lynx reintroduction as high as 91%. Below, you can find just a few of the key results from the survey; more detailed figures are in the publication linked above; "Reintroduction of the Eurasian Lynx to the United Kingdom: Results of a Public Survey".

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed.
