It is a very selective carnivore (which feeds mostly on wild-rabbit) and occupies an area equivalent to a thousand football fields. The iberian lynx is one of the most endangered felines in the world. Today, there are only about three hundreds in the wild. The book I am the Iberian Lynx. The Most Endangered Feline in the World, written by Maria João Freitas, illustrated by Nádia and Tiago Albuquerque and designed by Pato Lógico, reveals how this species is and how it survives.
This book is part of a collection dedicated to commemorative coins, published by The Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office, which aims to make the younger readers familiar with numismatics, through books on history, geography, science and nature. The sale of each copy and coin will contribute to the Trust Fund for the Conservation of Nature and Biodiversity.
