Opened in 1976, the sanctuary houses a diverse abundance of wildlife and vegetation, including white and gray pelicans, the mocking seagull, and other wading birds.

  • Senegalese National Park, but how sad to see all this plastic nest where birds breed ... interesting to know the creation of the islands.
