Lake (click to enlarge) Having water as their main component, wetlands are important habitats for many animal and plant species.

The plants of the wetlands:

  • capture solar energy and produce enough biomass to feed herbivore animal species

  • hold the slopes and reduce soil erosion

  • provide suitable locations to many animal species to feed, reproduce, rest or protect themselves

Today, the Park's ponds shelter swarms of aquatic organisms. The ponds were built in an area with recurrent pools that soon were settled by aquatic plants and amphibians (frogs and toads) as well, whereas aquatic and shorebirds quickly discovered this oasis. Today they are supplied with water from water wells and surface runoff as well.
