Wanted: Bobcat and Lynx photos

A bobcat/lynx study is currently under way at the University of BC Okanagan and the public's help is needed.

Lynx or bobcat?

A bobcat/lynx study is currently under way at the University of BC Okanagan, in partnership with B.C.’s Ministry of Environment, and we need your help.

We are seeking photos of bobcats and lynx captured by trail cameras, or conventional cameras, from all corners of the province and from all time periods to help determine the provincial distribution of each species.

The photos do not have to be great photography—they just have to show a bobcat or a lynx, or even just a part of one. Photos can be blurry or dark and don’t even have to clearly show which cat species is present. Photos will not be published or shared with anyone without permission, and photographers will retain ownership of their photos. The results of this study will be gladly shared with all those who are interested. Please send photos, along with the date and location of each photo, to TJ Gooliaff at tj.gooliaff@ubc.ca.
