Mauritanie carrefour des oiseaux migrateurs

La Mauritanie, un pays de rencontres:
La Mauritanie est depuis des siècles un carrefour de cultures, point de passage obligatoire des caravanes entre l’Afrique et la Méditerranée, croisement d’influences paléarctiques et afro-tropicales. Les zones humides mauritaniennes sont les premières à accueillir les oiseaux migrateurs du Nord en automne, qui se mélangent pendant l’hiver avec des oiseaux d'origines tropicales qui réalisent eux aussi des migrations régionales Sud - Nord.
