The Balkan lynx is now officially listed in the Appendix II of the Bern Convention!

Its listing was unanimously agreed by the signatory parties during the 37th Standing Committee meeting of the Convention held in Strasbourg, France, on 5-8 December 2017. 

After the meeting, a period of three months was required for the listing to be official, if no objections were presented by any of the parties, and, now, three months later, the Balkan lynx has achieved this status officially. 

The listing in the Appendix II of the Bern Convention foresees a stricter and stronger protection of Balkan lynx in its range countries and fosters transboundary cooperation for its conservation.
