  • The eucalyptus trees once imported from Australia to revive the timber industry now cause devastating forest fires, imperiling Portugal's remaining cork oak forests, home to hundreds of white storks. Protected Mediterranean monk seals are attempting to rebuild their decimated numbers in the Atlantic off the coast of Madeira, while on the neighboring Desertas Islands, the world's largest wolf spiders cannibalize each other.
