It is a welcoming place for many other species of animals, whose survival is in danger in other parts of the world. In this reserve 9 winged species have been saved from extinction , as well as another 7 that were about to disappear from the whole of Europe. There are over 3000 species of flora and fauna that thrive in this incredible spot which highlights the beauty of nature.
