An article entitled "Wolf Canis lupus and lynx Lynx lynx in Roztocze National Park, 2016-2017" by Dr. Robert W. Mysłajek, Dr. Przemysław Stachyra, Dr. Maciej Szewczyk, Michał Figura, Robert Stefański, Dr. Natalia Niedźwiecka and Dr. Sabina Nowak was published in 3/2018 issue of journal "Przegląd Przyrodniczy". Tracking, camera trapping and – in case of wolves – non-invasive genetic sampling based on 13 microsatellite loci, were used to determine the number of wolves and lynx in Roztocze National Park (south-eastern Poland). There were two wolf family groups breeding in the national park, which size accounted for 4-7 individuals. There were also four lynx – three males and one female – inside national park. The areas of the national park (84.8 km2) and overlapping Natura 2000 site “Roztocze Środkowe” are too small comparing to spatial requirements of wolves and lynx. Thus activities towards species protection should take under consideration also buffer zone surrounding its borders.
