With this dish we aim to raise awareness of the Iberian Lynx, an endangered species that needs protecting. Dining with this dishware will encourage children to learn and discuss the importance of caring for animals.
The Lynx is a medium sized feline which is native to the Iberian Peninsula (Spain & Portugal). Its most distinctive features are its triangular ears with fur on the tip, its small mane around its cheeks and neck and its spotty fur. It can leap to 5 m which makes this animal´s hunting technique very distinct.
Its survival is threatened by numerous drastic changes to their habitat.
In the 50s, the population of tits main source of food - European Rabbits- plummeted due to several viruses. As a consequence the Iberian Lynx population declined. Their numbers are affected by poaching, wild fires and loss of habitat due to urban development. There are just over 500 Iberian Lynxes thought to exist today. It is crucial that we protect them.
