This is the story of a species in extremis: The Iberian lynx is probably the world’s most beautiful cat.
Yet it may well be the most unknown.
It’s certainly the world’s most endangered and rarest cat – on the very brink of extinction.
But, at the very last moment, the Iberian lynx is now making a tentative comeback — with more than just a little help from its friends.
The program for the reintroduction of the Iberian lynx has been risky and intensive, bringing together an impressive workforce of international experts.
Meanwhile, it’s a reference project of global importance since it profits not only the Iberian lynx but a score of related wildlife species.
This TV show beautifully portrays Iberia’s charismatic big cat, a specialised rabbit hunter, in its habitat — the most stunning and wildest landscapes of southern Spain.
The leap of the Iberian lynx back from hopelessness into a sustainable future is a truly inspiring drama about the future co-existence of humans and wildlife.
