Ecological monitoring of the mouth of the Moulouya River (Ramsar site)

Charadrius hiaticula Moulouya

Ecological diagnostic, socio-economic diagnostic, mapping of habitats and the development of monitoring

The main objective of the mission is to provide up-to-date and recent diagnostic elements allowing the establishment of a comparative assessment of the evolution of the site’s initial state (in comparison with previous studies) and its conservation status. The aim is to promote the implementation of conservation and management measures for the Moulouya wetland and provide guidelines that will be considered for a possible future site development and management plan.

As the agent of the study, we coordinated and performed the socio-economic diagnostic, the ecological diagnosis, the habitat mapping and then the ecological monitoring program and reference state.
