Other Site Characteristics

This wetland situated on the northern coast of the island of Kerkyra (Corfu) is important for the threatened species Lutra lutra as well as for the ecological balance in the area. In addition, the site is characterized by a variety of habitats, and human activities have not yet exerted much influence upon it. This is of great importance for an island like Kerkyra which shows great tourist development and great pressure due to building construction.

4.2 Quality and importance

The wetland and the nearby habitats are kept in rather good condition. The protection and sustainable management of the site can contribute not only to the preservation of the wildlife but also to the economic development of the area (fishing, leisure activities, ecotourism). The greater the delays in establishing status of legal frame, the more the threats to the environment will increase. From the Other Important Species of Flora listed in section 3.3, the following taxa are included with motivation D, for the reasons mentioned below. The lizards Algyroides nigropunctatus and Podarcis taurica ionica are endemic to W or SW Balkans. The frog Hyla arborea and the lizard Ablepharus kitaibelii are mentioned in the CORINE-Biotopes Project handbook. Generally speaking, this site seems to support a noteworthy lagoon fauna, which, however, needs further study for clearer evaluation of its importance and for the selection of proper conservation and management measures in the area. The invertebrate species listed in section 3.3 with motivation D are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981
