Prefecture of East Macedonia and Thrace: Natural Environment


The natural environment in the Region of East Macedonia and Thrace is characterised by a variety of habitats, which host a great number of rare species, and by unique biotopes. There are many significant protected reserves (the Elati forest, the Frakto forest, the only virgin forest in Greece, the Porto Lagos lagoon, the Evros Delta, the Dadia forest). The natural environment of the Region of East Macedonia and Thrace is protected by the Ramsar Treaty (due to the fact that 4 out of the 11 Greek wetlands of international importance are in this area) and by the E.U. initiatives CORINE and NATURA 2000.
