mammals of meteora museum

Mammals


The collection of mammals consists mainly of animals from Greece and Europe and few that are found in other continents. Nowadays, some of them live in small populations under the risk of extinction and are protected by strict international, EU and Greek legislation.
The animals in the collection of the Museum live in almost all forest, coastal and terrestrial ecosystems (forests, plains, plateaus, alpine zone, etc.), as well as in wetlands. Each of them are presented through dioramas, which are configured to resemble their natural living environment. Guests have the opportunity to be informed about the risks these animals face today and hence sharpen their awareness for the necessity to protect the environment and animals that live in it.
