The Slovenia Forest Service (SFS), operating under the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Food, oversees the forests covering nearly 60% of Slovenia and is involved in wildlife and game management, including large carnivore conservation. SFS is the lead partner of the LIFE Lynx project, which aims to save the Dinaric-SE Alpine lynx population from extinction by introducing healthy lynx from the Carpathians, collaborating with partners from four EU countries (Croatia, Italy, Slovakia and Romania) involved to ensure the population's long-term viability.
