Sardinia: Province of Sassari II. (Sardinien: Provinz Sassari II.) (Szardínia: Sassari povincia II.) 04.2013.


The fauna of Sardinia is very interesting: many of the Mediterranean's widespread species are found here, as well as numerous endemic ones unique to the island. The landscape is very diverse with many different habitats, all with a characteristic fauna. First I present some photos of the animals of the Sassari province that was shown in the last post.

Last week I visited the municipality of Tarcal in the UNESCO area of the Tokaj Wine Region in North-Hungary. The area is famous for its vineries, the protected wetland habitats along the Bodrog and Tisia rivers, and the beautiful mountains. The protected areas are part of the Tokaj-Bodrogzug Landscape Protection Area and partly also the Ramsar Areas.

Exotic species of Tenerife (Exotische Arten aus Teneriffa) (Tenerife egzotikus fajai) 03.2013.


Tenerife, the 'Island of Eternal Spring' has been inhabited since at least a thousand years and many exotic plant species have been brought here from all around the world. These are mostly found in the cities, where they regularly escape from the gardens, but many species also threaten the indigenous flora of the beautiful natural habitats of the island. Of course, there are many non-native animals as well.
