Biotopia has released three videos where I talk ten things you probably didn’t know about gray wolf, Eurasian lynx and brown bear, respectively. See the videos in Swedish below. English versions will be due in 2018.
I also want to take the opportunity to wish you a happy Christmas! 🙂
On May 8 and 9 I participated in a course at Grimsö Wildlife Research Station learning how to build carnivore-proof enclosures for sheep and other domestic animals.
The course was very productive and we put up two different types of fences that are very effective to keep wolves out and also work pretty well for lynx and bear.
In the picture, Helena Jones is tying the knots to the electric fence, instructed by Inga Ängsteg from Viltskadecenter.
I have been out censusing carnivores for a few days in the area around Forsmark. I followed the tracks of a family group of lynx, a mother with two kittens for a couple of days. I also tracked marten and mink. There is a lot of roe deer in the area and I also came across tracks from wild boar.
The picture shows a track from a lynx north of Forsmark.
On 25 February we are hosting Rovdjurssymposium – Framtiden in Karlstad, Sweden. There is no cost and you need not pre-book. Everybody is welcome. See more in the invitation to the right.
