Re: 11 June: International Lynx Day

Post by Laan Yaa Mo » June 11, 2024, 5:09 pm

A medium-sized feline that prefers a forest home, the lynx is a nocturnal, solitary cat that enjoys hunting rabbits as well as other rodents or sometimes small deer. These elusive cats have a lifespan of around 17 years in the wild and about 20 years in captivity, and their coat color can vary based on the climate they live in.

The Eurasian lynx resides in the central and eastern regions of Europe, while the Iberian lynx can be found in southwest Spain, and both are considered in danger of extinction. In North America, some feline cousins are the Canadian lynx and the bobcat, but their populations are considered stable and not at risk.

International Lynx Day is here to feature these cats and raise awareness about their potentially irreversible plight!

History of International Lynx Day

Through hunting, loss of habitat, and low populations of prey (particularly wild rabbits), the lynx has found it very difficult to survive over the past 150 years.

Since the 1970s, conservation projects began to identify the shrinking size of the lynx populations and the Eurasian lynx was the first subtype to be reintroduced and protected. Several years later, the Iberian lynx was also identified as at risk and made its way onto endangered lists for protection.

Today, though the populations of the lynx do seem to be growing, they are still in need of help. Efforts toward conservation of these animals mean providing them adequate places to live and hunt, without the threat of unnatural causes of death. Currently the number of Euraisian lynx is estimated to be around 9000 while the Iberian lynx is still only around 400, making it the most endangered wildcat in the world.

International Lynx Day got its start in 2017 when it was first established as a collaborative effort initiated by the transboundary 3Lynx Project. Since then, the day has been observed each year to raise awareness for the very real threat that is posed against this majestic cat.

International Lynx Day seeks to increase knowledge and education surrounding the plight of these felines, while raising funds and efforts to protect them as their populations are given the time and opportunity to increase. This is a day to consider a variety of ways to support this amazing cause, bringing restoration back to nature through the protection and care of these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.

Re: Today is Russia Day

Post by Laan Yaa Mo » June 12, 2024, 11:11 am

Russia Day is a vibrant celebration held annually on June 12, marking an important day of national pride and remembrance in Russia.

This day commemorates the declaration of Russia’s sovereignty from the Soviet Union back in 1990. It was a pivotal event that signaled the beginning of democratic reforms and a step toward the establishment of the Russian Federation as a sovereign nation.

Since its first official recognition as a national holiday in 1992, Russia Day has become a time for Russians to reflect on their country’s journey and achievements.
- yes, whatever you say.

Post by Laan Yaa Mo » June 13, 2024, 12:22 pm

Maharana Pratap Jayanti is celebrated in the Northern and Western states of India, particularly Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Rajasthan on June 13.
