Fringing the Atlantic coast, the park comprises sand-dunes, coastal swamps, small islands and shallow coastal waters. The contrast between the harsh desert environment and the biodiversity of the marine zone has resulted in a land- and seascape of outstanding natural significance. A wide variety of migrating birds spend the winter there. Several species of sea turtle and dolphin, used by the fishermen to attract shoals of fish, can also be found



This video is part of the DVD "Tides of Time, 2011. The crown jewels of the ocean", and it is published as part of the innovative multimedia campaign launched in 2008 by UNESCO, Jaeger-LeCoultre and the International Herald Tribune.
