As a networking and information exchange action, a team from LIFE Brown Bear Defragmentation has visited LIFE Iberlince from 24 to 29 January 2014. The main goal of this project is to reinforce lynx numbers in the existing populations and establish new populations in areas identified as appropriate, introducing animals bred in captivity, so there are important actions for the improvement of the habitat to favour the species and to facilitate a quantifiable increase of connectivity between population cores through corridors, as well as to avoid road kills and accidents and improve permeability. LIFE Brown Bear Defragmentation team, accompanied by LIFE Iberlince technicians from Junta de Andalucía and Fundación CBD Hábitat, have visited underpasses and ecoducts used by lynx in Doñana area, risky stretches of highways in lynx dispersion areas and other conservation actions developed in the main population area in Sierra de Andujar.
