Paradise, who'd believe it
« on: Friday, 15 April, 2022 @ 21:36:56 »
‘Paradise’ is full of new surprises

Not that we haven’t heard it before, but Greece really is a paradise of biodiversity and thanks to the systematic efforts of individual scientists and scientific bodies, this paradise keeps yielding fresh surprises.

Scientists are discovering new endemic species and information about the country’s flora and fauna all the time... there are more than 1,200 wild bee species in Greece; the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos alone has more than Germany as a whole... researchers have discovered new bat populations they knew nothing about previously.

The subject of the third project is a pioneering program which concerns the reintroduction of beavers, which disappeared from Greece at least a century ago, as a means of bolstering ecosystems.
