Wildlife/Fauna in Aegina

Aegina's forests and mountains are home to several types of land mammals including foxes, hares, and badgers. Additionally it's one of the few areas in Greece which contains a marine environment that sustains a rarely found fish known as Katsoula. It's one of the most delicious fish in the Mediterranean and for this reason its whereabouts are a closely guarded secret.


Aegina is the proud home of the Hellenic Wildlife Hospital (EKPAZ) located just outside the mountain village of Paxia Rachi. It's the oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation center in Southern Europe and treats upwards to 4500 animals every year.
