The fauna and animal’s life of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is situated on the British isles
The humid and mild climate of Great Britain is good for plants and flowers. Some of them have become symbols in the UK.
The red rose is the national emblem of England
The thistle is the national emblem of Scotland and the Edinburgh International Festival.
The daffodils is the emblems of Wales
The UK was originally a land of vast forests, mainly oak and beech in the Lowlands and pine and birch in the Highlands
Extensive forests remain in eastern and northern Scot-hind and in southeastern and western England. Oak, elm and beech are the commonest trees
The Highlands with thin soil are largely moorland with heather and grasses. In the cultivated areas that make up most of Britain there are many wild flowers, flowering plants and grasses
The fauna or animal life of the UK is much like that of northwestern Europe, to which it was once joined. Many larger mammals such as bear and wolf have been hunted to extination, others are now protected by law.
About 50 land mammals are still found in the UK. Hedgehogs, hares, rabbits, rats and mice are numerous.
There are many foxes. Deer live in some of the forests in the Highlands of Scotland and in England.
There are several small lizards, two or three kinds of snakes, and several kinds of frogs and toads.
Some 230 kinds of birds live in the UK, another 200 are regular visitors, and many are songbirds.
The most numerous are blackbird, sparrow and starling. Partridges, pheasants and other large and rare birds are protected by law.
The number of ducks, geese and other water fowl has diminished during recent years. Gulls and other sea birds nest near the coast.
There are many threats to wildlife and ecological balance around the coast. The biggest threat to the coastline is pollution.
“We cannot continue to use our seas as a dustbin and expect our coastline to survive”, says Greenpeace. Many other ecological problems may be caused by privatization of the coast.
