Learn about lynx on Mašun – International Lynx Day

This year’s main event of the Forest Week was organized by Slovenia Forest Service on Mašun (Snežnik area) with the opening of the renovated forest educational trail and Forest House museum with a permanent exhibition on large carnivores. Both were prepared in the scope of an Interreg project Carnivora Dinarica, under the motto “Large carnivores co-create the best forests. Respect them!”

LIFE Lynx project partners contributed to the exhibition with content about the life of lynx, his role in the forest ecosystem, reasons why lynxes in the Dinarides are endangered, how many there are left in the wild and many other lynx related topics.

We invite you to enjoy the beauty and forest tranquility of Mašun while learning about large carnivores and their ecosystems. The forest eduactional trail is open every day, no appointment needed.

The Slovenia Forest Service is a public institution, established by the Republic of Slovenia, which performs public forestry service in all Slovenian forests, irrespective of ownership.

The Slovenia Forest Service does not perform any felling, extraction, transport and selling of wood, nor forest trade. 

With approximately 730 employees, mostly forestry engineers, the Slovenia Forest Service is the largest forestry institution in Slovenia and a forestry institution of European importance. We operate by the principles of the Slovenian forestry school, planning and monitoring the implementation of sustainable, close-to-nature and multifunctional forest management. Our motto is: “Preservation and close-to-nature development of Slovenian forests and of all their functions for their sustainable and good management and use as well as nature conservation in forest space for the good of present and future generations.”

At the state level, the Slovenia Forest Service is organised with its central unit in Ljubljana, at the regional level in 14 regional units, and at local level into 69 local units and 391 forest districts. SFS also comprises 10 hunting reserves.
