Madeira evergreen forests

WWF Abstract

The Madeira Evergreen Forests ecoregion encompasses the Madeira Islands and the nearby Savage Islands--named for the temperament of the people discovered upon European contact. In the Madeira Archipelago, an island chain in the eastern Atlantic, life abounds. Among these islands, habitats range from evergreen forests to grassland communities. Historically, there were no shortages of places for animals to find what they need. All around the islands are birds, bats, insects, and other creatures swooping, flying, and crawling through the diversity of habitats the islands offer.
