Souss-Massa National park
The national park of Souss-Massa, created in 1991, is located in Morocco in the region of Souss-Massa-Drâa, between Agadir and Tiznit (60 km south of Agadir and 40 km north of Tiznit). The entrance to the park of Oued Massa is at the end of the village of Sidi-Bnazern. Situated at the mouth of Oued Massa, this 33,800 hectare nature reserve is home to mammals such as mongooses, jackals, wild boars and gazelles, as well as birds such as gulls, hawks, Cormorants and herons.
The park is home to 46 species of mammals, 40 species of reptiles and amphibians and 9 species of fish, over 275 species of birds observed and many species of lepidoptera. There are 300 species of plants, 13 of which are endemic to the south-west of Morocco.
The site, located on an important bird migration route, is home to the last viable population of bald Ibis in the world, flamingos, storks, cranes (Gruidae) and osprey.
Two animal reserves have been set up in the park for the acclimatization of four Saharan antelopes (Gazelle dama mhorr, Gazelle Dorcas, Addax and Oryx algazelle) and the African ostrich (Struthio camelus), with a view to their reintroduction into their Biotopes of origin, in the great Moroccan South.
