Other Site Characteristics

The site comprises the lateral branches of Stara Planina mountain chain with its outskirts sliding into the Black Sea. The territory is very slightly fragmented and natural and semi-natural habitats cover almost the entire territory of the site. The only built-up area is the small village of Emona located near the cape and a small complex of bungalows next to the only small estuary in the site – on the Irakli beach. Irakli beach and Emona Cape is one of the last extensive sandy beaches and rocky shorelines in Bulgaria that does not contain any hotels or holiday complexes in its immediate hinterland. The main types of land use within the site are deciduous forests, pastures overgrown with bushes, dry meadows (code 6210), coastal habitats and also some extensive, mostly abandoned agricultural lands (vineyards, almond orchards and small plowed plots). Restoring and maintaining the extensive farming practices in the abandoned agricultural lands is of great importance for the conservation of key habitats of species like Elaphe quatrolineata sauromates, Testudo hermanni, Testudo graeca. Most deciduous forests are termo-phillous oak woods of habitat type 91M0 and a smaller area is covered by habitat type 91AA, and in the main part of the site at the places with higher altitude are found areas occupied by mesophilic forests that arehabitat types 91S0 and 91G0. There are no big rivers in the site. A small river Vaya flows through its central part and forms a small estuary (code 1130) at the Irakli beach. Along the river are found longose forests with mixed characteristics changing between habitats codes 91A0 and 91F0.Coastal habitats are steep cliffs with endemic species of Limonium spp. (code 1240), almost everywhere is presented a section with Annual vegetation of drift lines (code 1210) and in the area of the Irakli beach are found white dunes (code 2120) and embryonic dunes (code 2110). The sandy bottom (1110) extends up to 1300 m from shore and in front of Cape Emine up to 2500 m to the sea. It is dominated by medium and coarse sands. The sandbank of "Koketrais" is the largest and most complex in configuration accumulative sand structure on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and as such is characterized by the excellent representativity of habitat type 1110. Sections of the "Koketrais" bank are lithified calcareous sands, overgrown with Mytilus galloprovincialis - subtype of habitat 1170. A rock bank (1170) extends along the coast between the beach of Obzor and Cape Kochan at a distance of 500 m to 950 m from the shoreline, a depth of 7 m to 12 m, 4350 m long and 370 m wide. Its relative height is 3 m to 4 m. Its built of sandstone and marl suitable as habitat for Pholas dactylus, protected by the Bern Convention.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is important stepping stone. It hosts significant areas of forests of codes 91MO. It is northern edge of distribution of sub-Mediterranean Pubescent oak forests (91AA) - they are rare and are spread mainly in the southern part of the site on the southern slopes of Stara Planina mountain The site is one of the three seacoast areas in Bulgaria where the thermofilic oak woods (codes 91M0 and 91AA) form a long non-fragmented ecotone with the seacoast habitats: cliffs with Limonium sp (code 1240) and white dunes (code 2120). In small deep and moist valleys are found habitats of codes 91G0, 91S0. White dunes (code 2120) are formed as a narrow strip along Irakli beach, which is about 2.7 km long. Vegetated sea cliffs of the Mediterranean coasts with endemic Limonium spp. (code 1240) are distributed along the whole remaining part of the site’s sea shore line. The site is the only place in the Black Sea biogeographical region where habitat type 5210 Arborescent matorral with Juniperus spp. could be found in a small stand in close vicinity of Irakli beach. Here a mixed community of Juniperus oxycedrus and Piracantha coccinea is presented. The site is important for the geographical coherence of the network regarding rare habitats occupying small areas with disjunctive distribution along the Black Sea coast (1130, 2120, 5210, 91F0, 91E0, 92A0, 9180, 91SO in northern part of distribution) or are on the edge of their distribution (91AA northern limit).Site is important in terms of geographical coherence at least for habitat types: estuaries (1130), white dunes (2120), riparian forests of codes 91F0 and *91E0. Significant parts of the site, mainly in its southern part are occupied by dry pastures of code 6210. The river Vaya in the site is important stepping stone for Emys orbicularis, Bombina bombina and Lutra lutra (it also inhabits rocky shores in the site). Testudo hermanni, Testudo graeca, Elaphe quatorlineata sauromates, Vormela peregusna inhabit areas with not dense shrubby vegetation in the region, edges of dense forests with grasslands and agricultural lands, hedges in extensive agricultural lands. The site is one of the two sites in the middle part of the Black Sea Coast (between the ports of Varna and Burgas), where the Testudo hermanni and Testudo graeca inhabit coastal habitats with breeding populations. The site hosts un-fragmented habitats of wolf however the species is now only marginally presented there - the site intends restoration of natural range of the species. The site also hosts habitats of Spermophilus citellus, which is extinct from the area and the site is proposed for restoration of former natural range.The SCI covers 4846 ha of sandy bottom, including the "Koketrais" bank and Eminen sandspit or 13% of the national coverage of the habitat 1110, which, along with the good conservation status, makes the site the most important one for the conservation of habitat 1110 at national scale. The communities of psammophilous organisms that inhabit it are characterized by a very high diversity of invertebrates and fish - the invertebrate fauna inhabiting the sandbank has over a hundred species of molluscs, crustaceans, polychaete worms and representatives of other groups. Among the species of conservation concern are those listed in the Red Book of the Black Sea and the Black Sea Biodiversity and Landscape Conservation Protocol (Sofia, 2002) to the Convention on the Protection of the Black Sea Against Pollution (Bucharest, 1992) such as the crustaceans Upogebia pusilla, Pilumnus hirtellus, Xantho poressa, Diogenes pugilator, Apseudes acutifrons and lancelet Branchiostoma lanceolatum, which increases the regional (for the Black Sea) conservation value of the area.

5.3 Site designation (optional)

Sand bank "Koketrays" was designated as Protected Site with the aim to protect the sand bank Koketrays and the benthos fauna in the Black Sea. Its area is 760 ha. According to the current prohibitions and regimes in the protected area are prohibited: the extraction of sand without a positive decision on the EIA, extraction of mussels, snail and fishing by bottom trawling and dredging, pollution of the site with petroleum products and other wastes. "Koketrays" is the only marine protected area under the Protected Areas Act of Bulgaria.

For prevention appropriate assessment under art. 6 of the Habitats Directive is needed for the following projects and investment proposals: the construction of harbors and port installations; shore reinforcement and shore protection constructions (dikes, jetties, breakwaters); prospecting, exploration and exploitation of natural resources; prospecting, exploration and exploitation of oil, natural gas and unconventional hydrocarbons; construction of oil and gas pipelines; facilities for the production of electricity by wind power; farming of fish and shellfish aquatic organisms; underwater or floating constructions for tourist purposes. In order to control the status and effectiveness of conservation management measures monitoring of the conservation status of habitats and species populations is needed.
