Lynx is a unique wildcat species that is adapted to deep snow conditions. Not to be confused with its close bobcat cousins, lynx survive on a special diet of snowshoe hare.

Unfortunately, lynx populations in the contiguous U.S. are thought to be on the decline. ICL is currently engaged in a Fish and Wildlife Service planning process to protect critical habitat for these wild felines.

What else?

We are working diligently to protect the amazing diversity of wildlife that call Idaho home including the following animals:

How do we do this work?

The Idaho Conservation League engages state and federal agencies responsible for wildlife and wildlife habitat. We advocate for protecting wildlife and their habitat from unsustainable development. We are also part of several collaboratives that are restoring and reconnecting habitat for fish and wildlife.
