The wetlands of the Bas Loukkos, Morrocco are an estuarine complex of freshwater marshes in the floodplain of the oued Loukkos in the Province of Larache, close to the town of Larache that comprises 200 000 inhabitants. Following urban expansion and hydro-agricultural developments, the total area of this wetland has regressed from 3325 to 1210 ha within a single generation. These modifications have likely affected the functioning of the ecosystem and are threatening the resources it offers to the local populations (water for agriculture, pasture lands, building material for thatched roofs, hunting and fishing bags). Yet, the site, which is characterized by large formations of Iris, Cladium, Nymphea, and Salix still supports a rich and remarkable fauna, including several species of high conservation value such as eels, otters, and many vulnerable bird species including Marbled Teal, Eurasian Bittern, Little Bittern, Crested Coot, Purple Gallinule, Moustached Warbler, and Aquatic Warbler.
These wetlands are identified as a Site of Biological and Ecological Interest (SIBE) by the Directing Plan of Protected Areas in Morrocco since 1996, and were more recently designated as a Ramsar site. An integrated management plan and a project in ecotourism and environmental education are currently underway by the Scientific Institute of Rabat. The site is also involved in an international cooperation between the Regions of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (France) and Tanger-Tétouan (Morocco) of which goal is to insure the protection and sustainable development of the Bas-Loukkos marshes.

The main objective of the project is to contribute to the sustainable management of the Bas-Loukkos marshes through a better understanding of the ecosystem functioning based on a multidisciplinary approach (ecology, hydrology, sociology, economy, geography), which integrates the ecological and socio-economic values of the habitat.

 Smiley  QUOTE FROM QOAIS:

Shoals of mud near Mt Atlas, eh?  If the Azores were the tops of the mountains of Atlantis and the land extended closer to Africa, the ocean between them could have been little more than a channel in ancient times.  Perhaps when it sank it inundated western Africa leaving it a marsh to this day. 

Something changed the entire topography in Northern Africa, turning a fertile plain into the Sahara Desert.  The time lines that geology sets seem to contradict themselves.  However everything points to some type of global gelogical upheaval 12,500 years ago.

The thing is sungate, is that one has to check around as to what else was going on at the time.  Now, it seems that Egypt traded with the Phoenicians and Sea People, but no one knows who the Sea People were.  At least, today we don't seem to know.  It's possible they WERE what we call the Phoenicians, but it's possible they lived along the west coast of Africa, it could be they came from the west coast of Spain and Portugal.  However, what is most important to establish, even though I don't want to start this route all over again, is the time line.

Now, it is MY opinion, that in the beginning of the story, Plato is establishing the age of Greece and the age of Egypt.  He says the goddess created Greece (Athens) 9000 years ago and Egypt 1000 years after that.  Now I would agree that the word here is "years" since Solon was chatting with the priest about the history HE knew and THAT went back thousands of years.  Past the Flood of Deucalion.  However, it is contended that Plato spoke in "lunar months" instead of years, changing the time line altogether.  Now I would and do, question, why he would talk about the establishment of the two cultures in years, and then talk about Atlantis in months.  Doesn't make sense.

Also, as has been pointed out, another little blooper on Plato's part is establishing the beginning of Atlantis as the same time as her demise.  Which means to me, she didn't exist. 

The point I was trying to make here, was that there needs to be some sort of corroborating evidence that substantiates what you're saying. 

For example, in my conclusion for the "inspiration" for the story of Atlantis, I find that there are writings that uphold the idea that Plato used the Atlas mountains and the marshes around Lake Tritonis for his story namely Diodorus Siculus telling about the Amazons and where THEY lived and that they attacked firstly their neighbors the Atlanteans.  We find the Amazons at the base of the Atlas mountains in the marsh Tritonis, on an island - within the marsh.  Therefore, the Atlanteans must also be in this marsh on an island and we also have the city of the Amazons sinking into the water probably causing mud shoals, which is what Plato described. 

So - is there anything you can put forward to show that there was land above water between the Azores and the mainland 9000 years before Solon?

 Smiley  Well of course not, but here’s the thing.  You can take the very best degreed scientists and they can present all the evidence they have, and it doesn’t amount to a pile of beans when we’re talking about something that happened over 12,000 years ago.  It’s all conjecture and theories.  Even the radiocarbon dating data may be skewed because of the “natural” nuclear disaster in the Great Lakes that has just been mentioned.  So what evidence do we really have?  Even the geological evidence is based on layers of sediment. 

But legends, (the Hopi Legends for instance), have it that entire oceans have been thrown over the land, perhaps an asteroid slammed into the area throwing the entire land mass elsewhere.  There are indeed such geological curiosities that don’t make sense or add up to the established theories.  The point is, you’re going to need a time machine to REALLLY know what happened that long ago. They’re still trying to figure out how the Egyptians built the pyramids, LOL.  Of course you and I have that figured out, LOL.

Tree Climbing goats of Morocco

Known as skilled navigators of treacherous mountain conditions, maybe it isn’t such a surprise after all to find goats making their way up the steep and narrow trunks and branches of only slightly more dangerous trees. Unfortunately, the Argan tree is slowly being over-harvested so you may have to hurry to see the real thing.
