Motion-activated camera trap images of Eurasian Lynx in the Ukrainian Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, 2012-2018

Data comprise a catalogue of motion activated digital trap camera images of Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx (L., 1758)) obtained from motion-activated digital trap cameras located within the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, Ukraine (CEZ) over multiple years (2012-2018). Images of Eurasian lynx obtained from the cameras are included as part of the dataset.

The data were obtained from three research projects:
(1) NatEnvPr - Studies conducted 2012–2018
(2) TREE - Studies conducted 2014–2016 and
(3) RED FIRE - Studies conducted 2016–2017

The cameras for all projects were setup with the aim to capture images of medium-large mammals; the studies were not designed to obtain quantitative assessments of abundance and density of Eurasian lynx across the CEZ. No bait was used during any of the studies.
