With aprox. 3000 habitats and at least so many flora and fauna species it is a true heaven for nature lovers. Among them is protected Griffon Vulture, the bird with the biggest wingspan in Europe (up to 2.8m), who is sailing whole days (without flapping wings) over the island in search for lunch. Also the friendly dolphins, the biggest and most intelligent mammals swimming in this sea (humans incl.). The monk seal in north Adriatic is unfortunately considered extinct after the death of “Adriana” two years ago (she was living between Cres and Pula).
