In addition to our plant collections, a large number and variety of birds and animals can be found in Chelsea Physic Garden.

To these creatures the garden is a natural habitat, with all the concerns that being part of a food web brings – from searching for food to avoiding being someone else’s food, finding shelter and reproducing. Chelsea Physic Garden is one of many urban refuges for plants, animals, fungi, bacteria and single-celled organisms.

NB: In the lists of common names, where plurals are used, it means that more than one species of this type of animal are likely to be found in the garden, and as yet, the individual species haven’t been identified.
