Fauna on De Groote Heide

The fauna on De Groote Heide is extremely rich and diverse and can hold its own when compared with areas such as the Veluwe. In fact, the diverse landscapes and overgrowth means De Groote Heide is probably home to an even greater variety of species. This includes some rare and endangered animals, such as the Alcon blue. This butterfly has almost completely disappeared from the Netherlands and Belgium, except in certain parts of De Groote Heide (Strabrechtse Heide, Malpie and Groote Heide).
