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. While a visit to the forest house is only possible by prior appointment at the Slovenian Forest Service, Postojna Regional Unit. On June 12 and 13, 2021 you can celebrate International Lynx Day on Mašun. On Both days, the forest house will be open from 11.00 to 17.00.
