Descripción Latvia is publicly committed to becoming a leader of the European Union in conserving and increasing natural capital. However, practice shows that the interests of hunters, foresters, and farmers have led to the set goals being forgotten. Harvest quotas for specially protected species of European significance such as lynx, wolf, and deer (cloven-hoofed animals) are set taking into account the number of animals. Nevertheless, this information varies among data sources, where the number of lynx population varies up to eight times. It allows one to manipulate data, especially when deciding on the number of game animals per hunting season. Among the 23 EU Member States where lynx occupies the territory, their hunting is allowed in only three countries, that is, Latvia, Finland, and Sweden. In Latvia, the harvest quota for lynx exceeds the quotas set in the other two countries significantly. Within the audit, the State Audit Office draws attention to the fact that the designated authorities should address several crucial issues related to the game management, including the responsibility for the conservation of specially protected species.
