In the plantations, forest and open areas around Bulbjerg, there is a opportunity to see red deer and roe deer – the best chance is early morning and at dusk. The forest here are pointed out as one of the best Danish habitats for wolves. However, only a single migrating wolf is recorded during the latest years.

Many rare species of plants are found here including the endemic Eyebright flower (Euphrasia dunensis) and some rare Orchids.
