TRANSCRIPT

(birds chirping) - [Narrator] A lynx steals silently on soft paws through the Kalkalpen National Park.

Solitary by nature, this young female, born last spring, now seeks to establish her own territory.

This will be the toughest time of her life.

Hunting in unfamiliar terrain, while avoiding other lynxes.

(wings fluttering) Til now, she was inseparable from her mother and siblings.

Now, she is alone with her instincts.

Her survival in the wild is uncertain.
