Albanian National Trust Charity Profile
The southern coast of Albania is an area overflowing with exquisite ecological beauty. The region extends from the coast south-east of Saranda, approximately 15 km long and 5 km wide, up to the Greek border. This is a place of unique beauty, where mountains and the ocean meet creating cliffs, grottos, caves, hillsides, harbors, bays and some of the most intact natural areas; a place where ecosystems thrive while encompassing several of the nation's most significant archaeological sites.
Butrint natural park is of great importance for the conservation of global biodiversity as it supports 16 endangered species of flora and 14 globally endangered species of fauna.
The Butrint wetlands area is composed by a tectonic lagoon of 1600 ha, known as Lake Butrint, connected to the straits of Corfu by the Vivari canal, surrounded by forested hills and mountains and complemented by saltwater and freshwater marshlands
