Stakeholder Consultation

Welcome to the Lynx UK Trust national stakeholder consultation on the proposed trial reintroduction of lynx to the United Kingdom. This first stage in the consultation process is primarily addressed to the authorised representatives of national stakeholder groups, organisations, associations and collectives. The collection of responses to this stakeholder consultation document is an important first step in the Project planning and design process and will help to inform and shape the Trust's next steps.

Having read the associated consultation document we now invite you to share your ideas, opinions and concerns regarding the proposal for a controlled, scientific and monitored trial reintroduction of lynx to the United Kingdom. The following pages present an opportunity for you to comment separately on each section of the consultation document. On reaching the end of the question component we extend an invitation to national stakeholder groups, organisations, associations and collectives to actively participate in the next stages of the consultation process.

We want to ensure that anyone who is affected by, or could affect, the Project will have the chance to find out more, to input their own knowledge, to influence the Project and to voice their views. More appropriate opportunities for individuals and localised groups to comment will come at a later stage, once a release area has been provisionally selected and the local stakeholder consultation process has begun. However, we will endeavour to consider responses from anyone who takes the time to reply to this document
