Photos of the site
This is an important site for raptors and species occuring in srcub. Species of concern include: Sylvia rueppelli.
The area is located at the souther part of Crete on the south-east borders of Chania Prefecture. It comprises the Kallikratis and Argouliano gorges and the Manika plateu. The site has a complex geomorphological structure. Gorges, ravines and plateaus, mostly at the higher altitudes, combined with low human activity have resulted in the creation and maintainance of very important natural habitats.
