Great pics FREKI.

Currently on Australian TV we have this food program showing and it highlights the delights of Scandinavian cuisine. Last week they were in Copenhagen and it looks like a food lover's paradise.

While Copenhagen is by no means special in this regard there is a very wide selection and a pretty high standard ( Danes are crazy for organic and natural foods as I asume the program will likely also have touched )

Actually Swedish Moose have been known for swimming over here ( typically while drunk on fermented berries ) so it does happen Swedish animals visit

Sadly they tend to run around drunk on the roads and causes crashes


Short story about Denmark and animals - Denmark with it's seafaring history wanted to be a major global player back in the day and build a huge navy ( 2nd largest in the world at the time ), huge merchant fleet and cleared a LOT of land for agriculture and cities - as a result we lost nearly all our woods and with it ( combined with hunting ) we also lost a lot of our animals like the Bear, Wolf, Boar, Moose and so on ( if we go back even further we also lost the Bison and Beaver and a few other critters ) - it doesn't take Einstein to see how dumb that was in hindsight, so about a century ago huge reforestation projects started..

In 1900 we only had about 2% forest left - in the year 2000 we were up to over 14% and the goal is to reach 25% by 2100.. ( not easy nor cheap with so much land now on private hands, but people are pretty open to the idea as we know how important it is )

As part of the rapidly increasing forest percentage we have also brought back many of the extinct animals - beavers are now once more thriving in Jutland and Zealand - Bison is roaming the interior if the island of Bornholm, Moose and Wild Boar have been released in various places in Jutland..

But the biggest success was a few years ago where the wolf returned all by itself from Germany to Jutland - in the beginning it was expected to just be a couple, but now a few years later DNA tests have shown that we now have a population scattered across Jutland of at least 20 wolves

It's sadly unlikely the wolves will swin to my island of Zealand, but there have been talks about releasing it here too now that it's return to Jutland have been such a success - hope they will soon
