Denmark Nature & Greenery
Denmark is the threshold between the Atlantic region and the continent, between thesaline North Sea and the brackish waters of the Baltic Sea.
 Although Denmark is a small country, theclimate is changeable, with considerableregional differences.
Denmark is the natural home for a largenumber of plants and animals - around30,000 species in all.
Red-listed species in Denmark
In 2004, theNational Environmental Research Instituteupdated Denmark's Red List of threatened species, nowwith a total of 2,465 species of Danish fungi, insects,spiders, birds, etc.
In the 2004 evaluation,` specialists found 678 out of 2,465,or 27 per cent of Denmark's species to have either disappeared or to be threatened to a greater or lesser extent.
66 species have disappeared from Denmark since 1850,whereas 93 are evaluated as critically endangered.
 A total of 1,455 species are considered free from threat andfor the last 196 species data is insufficient to make anevaluation.
For the 20th century as a whole, the greatlosers were the birds living on meadows andheaths such as the white stork, and blackgrouse.
Black grouse no longer breed in Denmark andnor do white stork.
There were 2,000 breeding pairs of white storksat the beginning of the 20th century.
Finding food is difficult for this much-loved birdbecause many of the ponds are gone, and withthese the amphibians the stork feeds on.
