    Reintroducing the lynx

    Well I wouldn’t even know where to start with your last post Gleb! I have not been ‘screaming’, I am not ‘biased to reintroductions’, I have not‘been moaning about landscape changes’, I do not ‘hate’ White Storks, nor suggested they will cause an ‘ecosystem collapse’, and I have absolutely...

    Reintroducing the lynx

    Unfortunately there may be little than can save the C forests in the long term given their intolerance to a warming climate but putting up high fences to keep deer out maybe more effective in the short term than putting up fences to keep your wolves and bears in. But seriously what does...
