Don’t be the missing link – Sponsor the lynx today!

Minnesota used to have the most lynx in the Great Lakes region, but numbers dropped to near zero in the 1980s. Only recently have we seen signs of recovery, but as our climate changes lynx may move further north and out of our state altogether. Learn more about the Canada lynx

The Minnesota Zoo has funded the purchase of GPS collars for a study investigating lynx distribution in Minnesota, habitat use, and behavior; one of our staff participated in the project personally. The Zoo’s 18-year-old male lynx and a younger breeding pair are the favorites of many guests to our Minnesota Trail.

Your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation will help us provide the resources necessary for the Zoo to maintain the best possible care for our lynx and for all of our amazing animals, while also continuing our conservation efforts here at home and around the world.

Your sponsorship includes:

  • The children’s book Lynx Twins Grow Up by Stephanie Smith, illustrated by Robert Hynes.
  • A Canada lynx trading card with fun facts
  • A personalized sponsorship certificate
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference at the Minnesota Zoo!
