List of Birds of Libya

List of Birds of Libya

Nefusa is the name of the hill range inland and south of Tripoli. The Nefusa IBA straddles the lower slopes as well as the higher plateau of the eastern part of the range. The IBA is in the wettest part of the hill range though even here the annual rainfall is only 300-325 mm. This IBA is much better protected than Karabolli probably because there is no commercial pressure for development.

Karabolli is a coastal park 30 kilometers east of Tripoli which mostly consists of garrigue but has some citrus and olive groves as well as cypress woods. It is only 2 kilometers north of the main Tripoli – Misratah road. This is a stretch of the main west-east coast road which crosses the whole country. The park at Karabolli is under some development pressure, particularly for recreational use. It is very accessible to day-trippers from Tripoli.
