The camera of the Animal of the Year is located in the Elistvere animal park where at present 4 spotted cats live: the lynx lady Gella, lynx men  Lars and  Koopailves and one young new-comer from East Virumaa. In camera view we will hopefully  see Gella with light fur, also Lars who has a darker head and dark spots, and maybe also the shy Koopailves who keeps himself to himself. The newcomer – who is evidently a young female and who is said to have been left in an empty dog enclosure in East Virumaa – was brought to live at Elistvere this year and is as yet accommodating herself to the other lynxes – we will not meet her to start with. The young newcomer will live on her own in her enclosure for some more time.

The camera is installed in the lynx enclosure with a view towards a group of trees where Gella likes to sit and Lars to walk. Since the camera shows images also at night it is particularly worthwhile to watch late at night because we have to do with  night-active animals. The people working at Elistvere are also quite excited: what do their lynxes do in the visitor-free time? We also hope to hear the different callsof lynxes in the transmssion.

Communication is organised by Elisa and EENet. The transmission (camera stream) moves from Elistvere to the EENet server in Tartu by way of the  Elisa 4G connection.
