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! ūüôā

Carnivore-proof enclosures

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 √Ąngsteg from Viltskadecenter.

Carnivore census

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.
