Divjaka-Karavasta National Park is home to BirdON 

This Sunday, the BirdON students headed to Karavasta, the country’s most important lagoon, to observe and learn more about the bird species present in the area. 

Under the guidance of RAPA Fier, they also visited the Visitor’s Center, where they got to know more about the biological diversity of the Divjakë – Karavasta National Park as well as the traditional activities practiced by the residents of the park.  

Several birds that are characteristic of forests and wetland habitats were spotted by the students. Particularly striking ones include the European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), Syrian Woodpecker (Dendrocopos syriacus), Goldcrest (Regulus regulus), as well as the Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus crispus), flagship species of the park, Grey Plover (Pluvialis squatarola), Northern Pintail (Anas acuta), Eurasian wigeon (Mareca penelope) and many more. 

We are happy that enthusiastic youngsters are dedicated to recognizing and preserving Albania’s biodiversity.
