Excursion ornithologique découverte des oiseaux en liberté
Si vous aimez observer les oiseaux dans leur habitat naturel, Oualidia et les régions environnantes sont réputées pour ses nombreux endroits facilement accessibles et exceptionnels pour l'observation d'oiseaux aquatiques, en quantité et en qualité. Pendant une promenade facile de 30 min à travers plage, route et chemin forestier, nous accéderons à des lieux méconnus dont seuls les oiseaux ont le secret. Oualidia et les régions environnantes constituent un écosystème refuge pour plusieurs espèces d'oiseaux d'eau qui voyagent entre l’Europe et l’Afrique ; On y dénombre plus de 116 espèces d'oiseaux. Parmi les espèces remarquables qui la visitent, on peut voir régulièrement la Spatule blanche, le Flamant rose, le Goéland d'Audouin, la Sarcelle marbrée et de nombreux Canards et Limicoles. Outre leur valeur écologique, ces oiseaux participent au charme de la lagune. Notre voyage se terminera au siège de notre centre de recherche et protection des oiseaux par une boisson rafraîchissante, quelque pièces des huitres et une discussion sur l'expérience que nous venons de vivre
