Alderney’s Wildlife


Alderney’s wildlife is truly one of its highlights. Alderney is home to many species, both on its coast and inland. Sea kayaking and boat trips are popular, allowing visitors to see not only the brightly coloured marine life, but also the bottlenose dolphins and grey seals. If you visit in the spring and summer, you’ll be certain to see the beautiful flowers of Alderney in bloom, which attract a plethora of butterflies and moths — of which Alderney has one of the most diverse populations in Britain.
