    The varied climatic conditions and Complex Mountain terrain of the Central Balkan National Park combine to provide a variety of wildlife habitats. The Park is one of the few remaining locations in Europe that provides sanctuary to rare and endangered animals, such as the wolf, marten, otter, wild cat, Geoffrey’s bat, barbastelle, Schreiber’s bat, common dormouse, Balkan chamois, imperial eagle, corncrake, and ring ouzel.

 

   The Park is the world’s most significant habitat of the semi-collared flycatcher, white-backed woodpecker, Bechstein’s bat, souslik, and mountain molerat.

 

 

     The Central Balkan National Park is home to 59 species of mammals (66% of all mammalian species in Bulgaria); 14 species of reptiles (40% of Bulgarian reptilian species); 123 species of nesting birds (45% of Bulgaria’s ornithological fauna); and 8 amphibian species (half of all Bulgarian amphibian species)

 

   Twenty-ones of the vertebrate species within the Park are endangered globally; 80 vertebrate species have been placed under special protection in the Park.
