Other Site Characteristics

The area of this site covers Cape Akritas (SW Peloponnisos) and the neighbouring islands of Schiza (1090 ha) and Sapientza (963 ha), as well as the islets of Venetiko, Ag. Mariani, Avgo, etc., of the Oinouses island group. The island of Sapientza is wooded, whereas the rest of the site is covered with scrub vegetation.

4.2 Quality and importance

The main botanical interest of this site is the fact that the sea cliffs and rocky shores are home to endemic Limonium taxa. The great zoological importance of the area is indicated by the occurrence here of many important vertebrate taxa (birds excluded), some of which are included in Annex II of the Directive 92/43/EEC and two of them - the Monk Seal, Monachus monachus and the Loggerhead Turtle, Caretta caretta - are species of priority (section 3.2). All the site’s directive taxa are also included in the lists of the Bern and CITES Conventions and the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981. The other taxa have been evaluated as Other and Greek Important species on the basis of the evaluation system of section 3.3. All taxa of section 3.3 are marked with motivation C as they are protected by the Bern Convention. Also, the majority of the taxa listed in these two sections receive the D motivation as they are mentioned in the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981 . This site is also an EC Important Bird Area a fact which is fully justified by its dense and rich avifauna. The position of this site on the western bird migration route in Greece, at one of the Balkans southern tips, in combination with the occurence of suitable habitat types make this site very important.
