Natura Regions - Antinioti Lagoon

This wetland is at the northern coasts of Corfu and is considered especially important , not only because of the protected species Lutra lutra , which has been reported in the region, but also for the environmental balance of the wider region. Moreover, we should note that the region is characterized from a variety of habitats . Man activities haven't so far greatly affected the ecosystem. 


Importance:

The wetland and the adjacent regions are still maintained in a relatively good state. Reed thickets are predominant in the region. The protection and sustainable management of the region are expected to contribute not only to the protection of wildlife, but also to the economic development of the region (fishing, amusement, ecotourism).
