Wildlife of the Algarve

This picture gallery shows a small selection of the great wealth of wildlife and wildflower species that can be seen in the Algarve.

Pictures in this gallery are copyright protected; all rights reserved - Licence enquiry...

Although some wildlife and plant species are widespread and can be seen almost anywhere in the Algarve, many more have particular habitat requirements. Our Habitats section has pages of information about the various habitat types, where they are located in the Algarve, and the kinds of wildlife, plant and fungi species that tend to favour each habitat type.

See also our picture gallery and information pages covering Birds; Insects and Other Invertebrates (in particular Butterflies); Other Animals (notably Mammals, Amphibians and Reptiles); Wild Orchids; Other Flowering Plants; and finally Fungi.


We hope that you have found this information helpful. If so we are sure you would also enjoy our books about Algarve wildlife and wildflowers. Buy them online here...
