Charlotte told BBC Wildlife Magazine how one day while checking out camera-traps to locate Iberian lynx in Spain, she found wild lynx Farron had crept up alongside her. A very special 30 minutes followed which Charlotte recalled “That moment we were equals, just two animals existing in the same space at the same time. There was complete trust on both sides. It really was something to be in the presence of such a majestic and rare cat, whose near extinction was our responsibility".
