The Iberian lynx from Spain & Portugal is the most critically endangered of the wildcat species. Endangered status due to habitat loss of scrublands, illegal hunting and death from traps and fox baits. Rabbits, their main food source, have declined after the introduction of the myxamatosis virus.
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature estimates there are only 250 mature breeding individuals left.
