The Macedonian Ecological Society – MES captured and collared with a GPS tracker a young lynx that lives in the Jasen Nature Reserve in North Macedonia. The lynx which was named Noni, is the first Balkan lynx, which is an endangered species, to be monitored with a GPS collar outside of the Mavrovo National Park.
Macedonian ecologists state that they have known of the existence of lynxes in the area of Jasen Nature Reserve, but now for the first time they have used the opportunity to capture on and put a GPS tracking collar on its neck. The capture of this lynx is part of the semi-systematic camera-traps on part of MES which has shown that a rich and diverse animal world lives in “Jasen”.
Another lynx, but also foxes, martens, badgers, deer, wild cats, wild goats, wolves and bears live in this nature reserve in the vicinity of Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia.
