The Sidi Bou Ghaba reserve was created since 1976 in order to protect the last remaining primitive atlantic forest, the last fresh water coastal lake and more than 205 species of birds witch most of them migrate and pass over the lake before arriving at their wintering areas in the Sahel contries or african equatorial districts.
The surface hardly exceeds 650 ha however biodiversity is enormous! in fact plants reptiles and the invertebrates are at the same time diversified and typical.
Moreover at least 5 threatened species at regional scale nest in the site exp : North African Marsh Owl (Asio capansis tingitanus); Marbled Teal (Marmaronetta angustirostris); Crested Coot (Fulica cristata); Baillon's Crake ( Porza pusilla) and Western Swamphen (Porphyrio porphyrio).
