Canada Lynx in Landfill

Landfills are not the normal habitat of lynx! We think we’ve found out where this photo was taken. Learn more here and please let us know you have similar sightings.

We are studying Canada lynx to understand their distribution, abundance, persistence, and habitat use in and near the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota. Since 2003 we have placed radiocollars on 33 lynx, obtained over 15,000 lynx locations, located dens, and documented movements and habitat use.
