Danish scientists carried out a research which shows that there is twice number of wolves, bear and lynxes inhabit in Europe as compared to the other continents.
Although Europe is widely populated and smaller in size but still these species reside there.
Guillaume Chapron, main author of the study informs that it is difficult to locate untouched and unspoiled regions in Europe. Therefore, it is really surprising that these animals chose Europe as their home.
The report printed in the recent edition of Journal Science demonstrates the rehabilitated growth of big mammals in the continent. Astoundingly, these carnivores are living in unsafe areas where usually animals exist with human. The cooperation of numerous countries and strict rules made it possible for bears.
The researchers accumulated data from most of the European nations except Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. They investigated the number of brown bears, wolverine and Eurasian lynx in each country.
As per the report, wolverine generally found in three continents currently, there are 17,000 brown bears and 1250 wolverine merely in Europe. It indicates that population of big carnivores are stable and ascending.
Additionally, the data reveals that apart from Denmark, Netherlands and Belgium, majority of the European countries are permanent land of these species.
Wolverine cannot live in hot weather conditions. Hence, they are only found in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Scandinavia.
Moreover, the study uncovers that small carnivores are experiencing a decline in Europe.
