0

Other Site Characteristics

The area is located at the souther part of Crete on the south-east borders of Chania Prefecture. It comprises the Kallikratis and Argouliano gorges and the Manika plateu. The site has a complex geomorphological structure. Gorges, ravines and plateaus, mostly at the higher altitudes, combined with low human activity have resulted in the creation and maintainance of very important natural habitats.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important site for raptors and species occuring in srcub. Species of concern include: Sylvia rueppelli.
