The Ichkeul lake and wetland are a major stopover point for hundreds of thousands of migrating birds, such as ducks, geese, storks and pink flamingoes who come to feed and nest there. Ichkeul is the last remaining lake in a chain that once extended across North Africa. This National Park was on the Unesco’s list of sites in danger. Due to governmental interference the salinity is being reduced. The lake and the wetlands were removed from the sites in danger list in 2006.
