Helping To Save The Canada Lynx

The Canada Lynx is one of the last of the big wild cats left in the United States. Although their population is robust in Northern Canada, their numbers are considered endangered in the States, with only a few hundred in the wild. In East Aurora, Hawk Creek Wildlife Center recently began an ambitious Canada Lynx breeding program, one that will not only help strengthen breeding stock of the species, but also will provide a companion for their beloved resident Lynx, Kodiak. Loretta Jones is founder of Hawk Creek." We're just starting our program, but we know we need to do it, because it used to live in NY State and we're losing our cats , so we need to do it." Tanya Lowe is Director Of Wildlife Education at the center." Animals have emotions, they have needs other than food,water,shelter. And for Kodiak right now, that is a companion."
