The national park has a vast array of birds, but it is also one of the last strongholds of the endangered Iberian lynx – one of Europe’s truly amazing predators which wander these wetlands.

The plethora of different habitats, whiche include marshes, sand dunes, scenic lagoons, scrubland and shallow streams, together create an area perfect for wildlife. Doñana is an important location for migrating birds, and summer sees the arrival of avian visitors from Africa when vibrant colonies of flamingos visit this part of Spain. More permanent residents include Spanish imperial eagle, mouflon and Egyptian mongoose.
