Rare White Butterfly

Flying Common Kestrel
Cornwall is the most southernly county in England and offers a huge diversity of habitats for a wide variety of wildlife that is rarely found elsewhere in the country. Mammals of both land and sea, fascinating birds and an enormous variety of marine animals and even insects can be found all over Cornwall and around the rugged coastline.

Birds of prey such as buzzards, kestrels and owls can be seen surveying the ground for prey from the skies above and perching on the signs and lampposts that line the roads. Rare insects from butterflies to glow worms can be found across the county as can the common lizard, a reptile which is only found in the warmer regions of the UK. As well as these rarer animals, badgers, foxes, hedgehogs, rabbits and squirrels are all commonly found in woodland and hedgerows all over Cornwall.

Do Humans Actually Respect Animals?

Giant Panda

Polar Bear
The ongoing human presence on Earth has a greater impact on the other animals that live here every day, and we are now faced with a sad situation where many of the more vulnerable animals and animals that are considered a threat to humans are dying out and will become extinct in the not to distant future. The main cause of this destruction is not down to climate change as we all expect but more due to the fact that humans are physically taking over the planet with little or no respect to the other creatures that inhabit it.

Many species of bear, if not all, are under threat as the habitat and territory of these animals have become smaller and smaller and the bears are therefore forced into areas where they are not originally from and are expected to adapt to their new surroundings. Not to mention that numerous bears are killed every year by humans by means of defense, and more devastatingly, trophy hunting. The elusive polar bear not only has these factors to contend with, but also the fact that global warming is causing the ice caps to melt, and therefore their native habitat.
