Animals A-Z

Skansen is home to wild Nordic animals such as wolves, moose, lynxes, wolverines, seals and otters. A number of historically interesting rare breeds are also included in conservation projects.​They are part of our agricultural heritage, showing how important animals were to the households of the past. Skansen has several species that are part of national and international conservation projects, including European green toads, sand lizards, broad-fingered crayfish, European bison, otters and wolverines. Cooperation with various conservation bodies also aims to ensure an exchange of knowledge and information that helps with conservation and creates opportunities to reintroduce animals into the wild.
