Azahar is number one !  


A young female Lynx, Azahar, is the first resident of the new Iberian Lynx Reproduction Centre near Silves.

She arrived from Spain on 26 October 2009 and will shortly be joined by a further 15 animals.


It is hoped, in time, to begin to reintroduce this native species back into the Algarvean countryside.
