MWC Morocco: Morocco adds 20 varied new Ramsar sites
Wednesday 29 June 2005, by Web Team

June 26, 2005

The Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention is delighted to be able to report that that Government of Morocco has designated 20 new Ramsar sites, in all parts of the country from the Atlas mountains to the seacoasts on both the Atlantic and Mediterranean. As *Ramsar’s Lucia Scodanibbio *demonstrates in the accompanying story, there is a great variety among the new sites, not only in their wetland types — from mountain lakes to estuaries, from oases to gorges to dammed reservoirs — but also in the services they perform in terms of biodiversity, hydrological functions, and livelihoods in an essentially arid environment. The list also includes the month of the Moulouya, a MedWetCoast site. Morocco now has 24 Wetlands of International Importance covering a surface area of 272,010 hectares. Lucia has prepared an synoptic story in English and French on the new sites, as well as brief site descriptions to accompany the story and fill out the Annotated Ramsar List.
