The National Park of Souss Massa (created in 1991) is located in Morocco, due south of Agadir. With its 33800 hectares of ground between the estuary of the Souss Massa river and the Atlantic Ocean, it includes seven Berber traditional villages.
This Park, renowned throughout the world, hosts particular ornithological species, including the famous bald ibis (who is only present here) and other species of ibises, flamingos, white spatulas and black-headed tchagras.
The flora varies depending on the quantity of water present: from desertlike and rocky areas to others with various vegetation of euphorbia and eucalyptus trees, to others with palm trees along the river.
The Coast of the Park is very diverse, ranging from endless sandy beaches, to plunging cliffs, and from harmonious coves to fishermen caves.
