Golden Jackal Expansion in Europe
The expansion of golden jackal in Europe is ongoing. Dispersing animals have been observed as far as the Baltic countries, Denmark, Switzerland and The Netherlands. In the future, they can show up anywhere in Europe. Unfortunately, there are very few systematic monitoring of jackal populations and the species remain difficult to detect in recently colonized countries. Any information of jackal presence in Europe (including in countries with known jackal populations) can be important to better understand the expansion of the species. In addition, these data could be vital to ensure a legal status of the species. If you have such information, please let us know by filling the form below. We will promptly contact you and will ask for your permission before using and/or communicating about your observation.
