The Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) is a critically endangered wild cat that can be found in increasingly small numbers on the Iberian Peninsula. The Iberian lynx population is decreasing due to the loss of its primary prey, rabbits, as well as habitat loss.
Various conservation programs are underway to prevent the cat’s extinction.
