Article Index

Flora and Fauna

The flora and fauna in Los Alcornocales is particulary rich and varied, due to the considerable size of the park and to the humidity, which offers prime growing conditions and therefore natural protection to the numerous species of animals and birds inhabiting the area. 18 different types of birds of prey inhabit the Natural Park’s, with other species passing over Los Alcornocales on their annual migration across the Straits of Gibraltar to northern Europe.

In addition to the vast expanses of cork oak and of other trees such as the gall oak and wild olive trees, there is also a wealth of ground vegetation, including heather, lichens, ferns, gorse, lavender and hawthorn.
