The Ecology of Salt Lake

Salt Lake, which is included in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Temporary List, is considered to be one of the most important natural areas of the world in terms of ecology and biology. The lake and its environs, which are geologically tectonic in origin, are classified as a Class A wetland according to Ramsar criteria; 1st Degree Protected Area; Important Plant Area; Important Nature Area; Posses an important avian area status. The salt lake, having biochemically a small inland marine character, and its environs are the only habitats of many plant and animal species that do not live anywhere else in the world. The region is home to a large number of indigenous, summer and winter migratory bird species and flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus) during breeding, migration and wintering periods. With the uncontrolled use of the region's natural resource stocks, the endemic fauna and flora are threatened with extinction. Developing approaches for the sustainable use of resources, reviewing existing habits of natural resources and initiating efforts to spread the correct usage habits have become a necessity.
