Oued Massa (Massa river)

The 33,800 ha Parc National de Souss–Massa was created in 1991. Lying between Agadir to the north and Sidi Ifni to the south, this Atlantic coastal site includes a variety of habitats. It encompasses the estuaries of the Oued Souss (the northern limit of the park) and Oued Massa. This area comprises sheep-grazed littoral steppe approximately 1–2 km wide between the foothills of the Anti-Atlas and the sea. The soils are mainly sandy, with some rocky and stony patches, and most of the area consists of small, intermittently cultivated fields. (Ref. IBAs)
