Due to the lack of pol­lu­tion and the care­ful at­ti­tude of its res­i­dents, Sark is home to a wide va­ri­ety of flora and fauna. Dur­ing Wild Flower Fort­night, you can en­joy guided walks through wild gar­lic, red cam­pion, blue­bells, thrift and sea cam­pion ( wild-flower-fort­night). A key lo­ca­tion en route is the Gouliot head­land. De­clared a Wet­land of In­ter­na­tional im­por­tance, the sea caves be­low it are car­peted with sponges, sea anemones and soft coral. Sark is also an or­nithol­o­gist’s dream, with ra­zor­bills, puffins and the largest guille­mot colony in the Chan­nel Is­lands as well as ful­mars, oys­ter­catch­ers and pere­grine fal­cons. You might even see com­mon or bot­tle-nosed dol­phins in the waves while you walk along the clifftops.
