5 hryven UKRAINE 2023 - The Renaissance of the Eurasian lynx "Chernobyl"

Description :

This coin celebrates the Eurasian lynx. The 30-kilometer exclusion zone and mandatory resettlement zone, which was designated the Chernobyl Radiation and Ecological Biosphere Reserve on April 26, 2016, has become a special type of breeding reserve not only for animal species common, but also for species in danger of extinction. The lynx is one of those rare species that are difficult to find in the wild today. In the past, lynxes were widespread in Polesia (a natural and historical region that begins at the far end of Central Europe and encompasses Eastern Europe, including eastern Poland, the Belarus-Ukraine border, and Western Russia). But the destruction of forests and hunting by man made the animal rare as early as the 19th century. Eurasian lynxes are on Ukraine's endangered species list. They are also protected by Appendix II of the Berne Convention on the Conservation of Wildlife and Natural Habitats in Europe and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.
