A Ramsar Wetland Area
Located next to the Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary in Senegal, Diawling National Park is a Ramsar Wetland where fresh water from the Senegal River meets the salt water of the Atlantic ocean. The park is a large sanctuary for wildlife, including migratory birds, boar, reptiles and primates. Designated in 1994, the trans-border biosphere reserve straddles Mauritania and Senegal and is a great place to observe African fauna.
We’re working on collecting photos of this protected land and its wildlife.
