Stevns Klint, is a geological site covering around 40 hectares that includes a 15km-long coastline with fossil-bearing cliffs as high as 41m. It provides a representation of the evidence of the Chixulub meteorite impact that took place at the end of the Cretaceous Period around 65 million years ago. This impact is widely believed by scientists to have caused the end of the Age of the Dinosaurs, and led to the extinction of more than 50% of life on Earth. The site lies on an important bird migration route between Scandinavia and southern Europe and Africa. It is also home to species of particular conservation concern at the European level including the Sand Lizard, seven bat species, and the Smooth and Great Crested Newt.
