The bear and the wolf of the Pyrenees are part of the natural heritage of Spain, France and Andorra. Both species have transboundary distributions: the bear with a breeding population in the Central Pyrenees (Haute Garonne, Arièje, Val d'Aran and Pallars) and the wolf, through the presence of some erratic males settled in the Pre-Pyrenees and Eastern Pyrenees.
