Description:

RAMSAR sites in Namibia: Walvis Bay in Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Walvis Bay. 23/08/95; 12,600 ha; 23°00'S 014°27'E. Nature Reserve. A tidal lagoon consisting of adjacent intertidal areas, Pelican Point, mudflats exposed at low tide, and sandbars serving as roosting sites. The site supports varying numbers of wetland birds (37,000 to 79,000 individuals); some species such as flamingos occur in impressive numbers. Eleven endangered bird species are regularly observed. Human activities consist of recreation and salt production. Residential development exists along the lagoon, and natural siltation may eventually lead to the infilling. Ramsar site no. 742. Most recent RIS information: 1995. Also see https://www.protectedplanet.net/walvis-bay-ramsar-site-wetland-of-international-importance
