Iriqui National Park

Iriqui National Park. The park is a typical desert landscape of southern Morocco. The vegetation is represented by a wooded steppe and savanna with acacias. Some of its dunes are covered by tamarix. During wet periods, Lake Iriqui becomes a temporary wetland and a port of call and wintering site for many migratory water birds, including flamingos, coots and

geese, which gives the park an important ecological character. The rehabilitation of the wetland was one of the main objectives, when the park was created. In the park there are houbara bustards, North African ostriches, barbary sheep, dorcas gazelles, oryxes and striped hyenas. There is also a large number of reptiles such as lizard, wyches, monitor lizards, chameleons, geckos and different varieties of snakes. Population of the area are nomadic. The Iriqui area is the main place for grazing because of its good grazing potential. The rich landscape and cultural heritage of the region gives the park an important ecotourism potential that will be a lever for local economic development.  https://youtu.be/Cab29FylRQw
