Wildlife in Spain
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.
