Last Friday, Paula, the 14-month-old female lynx, was transferred from Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich to Poland, where she will help launch a reintroduction project for the resettlement of lynx in the wild in Pomerania.
Paula's journey to her new home in West Poland went smoothly and over the course of the weekend she settled in well in her new enclosure. The female lynx is quite relaxed and already exploring her enclosure. She does not shy away from the gaze of curious visitors who instantly want to meet Paula.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
