WONDERS WILD OF EUROPE GIANTS ANCIENT IN THE RAINFORESTS OF CHILE
GREAT CORMORANT Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis
Something of a living fossil, the cormorant family is a very ancient group of birds, its ancestry stretching back to the time of the dinosaurs.
The cormorant is another conservation success story, now breeding in the hundreds of thousands across Europe.
They breed in colonies in trees or on the ground, both in marine and freshwater habitats, but still suffer a lot from prejudice and persecution.
