On Tuesday 1 October Svenska Rovdjursföreningen (the Swedish Carnivore Association) arranges a lecture with well-known zoologist Sverre Sjölander in Uppsala. The question that Sverre Sjölander looks to answer is “Who owns the wild animals?”. The lecture is in Swedish and free of cost. Come to see me there.
On Saturday I held a talk about lynx biology at Nordens Ark for the Swedish Society for Carnivore Conservation. Some 50 people were in attendence in what was a great meeting. I thank Ingemar Pettersson for allowing me to use the picture.
The day after, on Sunday, I spent a few hours taking pictures of the snow leopards, again to complement our pictures of wild snow leopards. Irbis and Saheli were both up and about. I also saw the manul, or Pallas’s cat, for the first time. It is a hairy little cat which looks even more grumpy than a European wildcat.
