Media invitation - Lynx kittens at the Biodôme!

Official Arrival in Their New Habitat

MONTRÉAL, July 19, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Montréal Space for Life invites media representatives to see the official arrival of the lynx kittens, along with their mother, in the Laurentian Maple Forest ecosystem. Be the first to meet them and watch them exploring their new surroundings.

Two lynx kittens were born on the night of May 15–16 at the Biodôme. This event, relatively rare for Canada lynx in zoos, was part of the Species Survival Plan of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in the US. The lynx at the Biodôme play a valuable role in helping to maintain the genetic diversity of the captive population.

Starting Wednesday, visitors will be able to watch the lynx kittens exploring their new playground, under their mother's watchful eye. The little balls of energy are sure to have fun climbing the trees and scampering around the rocks in their habitat.

Come get a close-up look at the new kids on the block at the Biodôme!
