Learn about Western Sweden's 500 common and cool animals
There are an estimated 50,000 different species of animals in Sweden and identifying them can be hard without knowing where to start. This material, however, may help. It contains information on 500 animals (some species, some groups of related species) selected as being the ones you are most likely to see. The material has been designed with Western Sweden (Västra Götaland and Halland) in mind but can with very few exceptions, which are clearly noted, be used throughout Sweden. The material does not require prior knowledge but it may at times seem complex so please have a look at the instructions on how to use the material. It is suited for high school students or as a solid starting point for amateur naturalists.
The material consists of a short description file called "Guidelines" which is intended to be read before use, and eight additional files which each can be used in isolation once the guidelines file has been read.
