Animals & Plantlife
General Category | 17-03-08 03:09 GMT | Posted by Ian Chicken
Ascension for its size has a varied group of Animals, ranging from very small spiders, through, scorpions, snails, mice, crabs, up to Ghekos, Sheep and Donkeys.

The following pages will give a brief look or listing of the species that have been, still are on, or visit the Island's.


Ascension has played a role in helping the understanding of birds from tropical regions.

For a very detailed and intresting insight (my brief outlook is taken from this) into the Natural History of Ascension (and St Helena)
see the book written by Philip and Myrtle Ashmole.   St Helena and Ascension Island: A natural history.
