Animals in Poland! Posted by on May 26, 2018 in Nature, Phrases

Unspoilt nature, immense forests and wetlands are the hidden treasure of Poland. Poland can be proud of its ecological corridor system – green belts that guarantee connectivity between animal habitats. This country hides natural landscapes of immense wealth due to the number of wild animals that inhabit its mountains and forests. Among these animals we can find brown bear, wolf, European bison, boreal lynx and beaver among others.

Here is a list of different animals in Poland (wild ones and the ones you can find in Polish villages!):

About the Author: Kasia

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.
