FC: Canada Lynx Lynx Canadensis | By: Marissa Arlin & Zach Page 3rd Period AP Environmental Science November 25, 2008

1: Canada Lynx was listed as threatened on The Endangered Species Act on March 24, 2000. | A Canada Lynx stands about 2 ft. tall, is 3 ft. long, and weighs between 15-30 pounds. | The Canada Lynx is a hybrid (a mix between a lynx and a bobcat)

2: Lynx mating season occurs between February and March. | Females give birth two months after mating.

3: The average liter size for female lynx is 2-4 kittens. They are fully weaned at around 3 months, but will start eating meat as young as 1 month. Kittens stay with their mother for their first year. Lynx can then mate after their first two years.

4: The Canadian Lynx's habitat is typically in coniferous forests in the North, such as Canada, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and Washington.

5: A designated critical habitat is specific areas within the geological area occupied by the species at the time of listing, if they contain phsyical or biological features essential to conservation, and those features may require special management considerations or protection and specific areas outside the geographical area occupied by the species if the agency determines that the area itself is essential for conservation. There has been a designated critical habitat made for the Canada Lynx. It is approximately 1,841 square miles in the northern states of Minnesota, Montana, and Washington. This critical habitat was designated in 2006.

6: The Canada Lynx depends on the snowshoe hare to survive. About 75% of their food is made from the hare.

7: The Canada Lynx also hunts animals like small rodents, squirrels, birds, and juvenille deer and caribou to surivive. They also have predators, that hunt them for food and to survive. These animals include wolves, fishers, bobcats, coyotes, and humans.

9: The Canada Lynx is currently listed as threatened on the Endangered Species Act. There are a few different causes for this species to be threatened. They include: >Trapping for fur trade >Predators and Competition >Human Settlement

10: The Canada Lynx is a newly threatned species so there has not been a recovery plan put into action yet.

11: Conservation Plans: > Cedar River Watershed HCP > City of Tacoma, Tacoma Water HCP > The Canada Lynx has also been added into other previous made conservation plans.
