Animals

The highest concentration of large carnivores anywhere in Europe is found in the Romanian Carpathians. See plOl for information on how to see some of these creatures.

Romania's splendid nature teems with enough life to keep enthusiasts busy for quite a while: there are 33,792 species of animals here (707 of which are vertebrates; 55 of these are endangered) as well as 3700 species of plants (39 of which are endangered).

Birdlife in the Danube Delta is a never-ending treat (p216). It is a major migration hub for numerous bird species and home to 60% of the world's small pygmy cormorant population.

Moldova counts some 16,500 species of animals (460 of which are vertebrates) as its citizens.
