Wildlife in Spain

Spain is a country dedicated to wildlife conservation. In Spain there are many national and natural parks dedicated to the preservation of Spanish wildlife.

Spain is one of the countries of the European Union most dedicated to wildlife conservation. In Spain there are many national and natural parks dedicated to the preservation of Spanish wildlife, both flora and fauna. Many species of Spanish wildlife were on the border of extinction a century ago, but the conservation efforts have proved fruitful for Spanish protected species.  Some of the protected Iberian animals include: storks, several species of vultures, the Iberian wolf, Iberian wild boar, Iberian lynx, Cantabrian brown bear and Iberian fox.

Other animals in Spain are still seriously endangered with only a handful of animals remaining in the wild.  Among the most threatened species in Spain are the Iberian lynxes and Cantabrian brown bears. . There are currently recuperation projects underway in specialized centers dedicated to the conservation of Spanish wildlife to restore the numbers of these endangered species in Spain.  They have already had success raising these protected species in captivity.

Spain remembers and pays tribute to one of the most important Spanish wildlife activists: Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente, who sadly died in a plane crash while filming an episode of his famous Spanish television show “Man and Earth” on location in Alaska.
