Finland is one of Europe’s last places of true wilderness, its also the most forested country in Europe with around 70% of the land being covered with trees. Most forests are coniferous and reach so far north that they lay on the same latitudes as Alaska or Central Siberia. Finland is also known as the “Land of a Thousand Lakes”. Most of these lakes are small and shallow but cover vast areas of this amazing country.

It was thought that the worlds smallest and rarest wild pig by the 1960’s was lost forever.

They are still critically endangered and on the IUCN red list but the future looks brighter for them with the work going on to save them.
