ISI­MAN­GAL­ISO WET­LAND PARK

YOU (South Africa) - - YOU NEWS -

This nat­u­ral wet­land and coastal site in KwaZulu-Natal is home to nearly 7 000 species of an­i­mals and plants – in­clud­ing nearly 500 threat­ened species. It’s been a World Her­itage site since 1999 and fea­tures co­ral reefs, sandy beaches, coastal dunes, lake sys­tems, swamps and ex­ten­sive reed and pa­pyrus wet­lands.

Its lo­ca­tion on the coast be­tween sub­trop­i­cal and trop­i­cal Africa means it’s home to an ex­cep­tional di­ver­sity of species.

Tra­di­tional fish traps, seen in this pic­ture, are still used here.
