Half of the bear population inhabiting the entire Cantrabrian mountain range is to be found here, in addition to wolves, grouse, eagles and a multitude of other species, all of which have found their ideal habitat in the park. The sparse human population and its sustainable use of the park's natural resources over the centuries has given rise to its present-day status as a peerless natural enclave, one which I will do my utmost to show you, paying special attention to the influence of human inhabitation, without which the park would not be the same today.
