Site Ramsar 1485 : Sebkha Zima

An endorheic lake with saline water, which supports a number of organisms adapted to hypersaline conditions. The site plays an important role in the recharge of the groundwater table. 30,000 tonnes of salt are produced annually from this area...

...However, salt extraction has transformed almost half of the wetland area into salt works and drainage channels and deeply modified the site's hydrology.
