DEL NORTE, CO- MARCH 29: Photographer Amy Toensing holds a lynx that is to be reintroduced to the Southern Colorado wilderness March 29, 2005 in Del Norte, CO. The holding facility behind Toensing held 23 lynx that were looked over by a CDOW vet, 18 of which were collared and released that week. In 1999 the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) began a lynx reintroduction program, trapping the animals in Canada and bringing them to Colorado. The goal is to re-establish the lynx population in the state, which has been nonexistent since the 1970s, to a viable level where the population that can sustain itself. The program has brought in 204 lynx between 1999 and 2005. There have been 71 known deaths, and 101 kittens born. The program is considered widely as a success, however the program has also instigated controversy protests from animal rights groups and developers.
