 The Wetlands Marches

  

The Kallonis Gulf region which includes the salt-pits, the region of Messon and the "Vouvari" river, comprises one of the most important wetland areas in Greece and habitats to an exceptionally diverse species of rare birds, the most striking being the flamingo.

The Kallonis Gulf region which includes the salt-pits, the region of Messon and the "Vouvari" river, comprises one of the most important wetland areas in Greece and habitats to an exceptionally diverse species of rare birds, the most striking being the flamingo.

This "basin" is surrounded by the Tsiknia river, the Mylopotamo containing ruins of ancient water-mills and the island's large pine forest, making it an extremely interesting environmental site and inspiring the development of eco-tourism and bird-watching.
Other noteworthy wetlands that are home to a significant number of rare birds include the wetland area in the "Dippi" region, as well as Almyropotamos, the river of Vatera.
