Wildlife on the island

Malören' character bird is the Baltic tern. It hedges in Europe, Asia and South America - and during summer it has its residence on Maloren. The Baltic tern belongs to the species of gulls and can travel up to 40,000 km/year.

In addition to the Baltic tern, you can also see other gulls, such as the herring gull and the great black-backed gull, at Malören. Even skuas are hedging on Malören, these can often steal the prey of terns as well as gulls. On the island, small and large beach plover, the ruddy turnstone and redshank can also be observed.

Normally you can´t find mammals on the island since they don´t survive the hard winters.
