Birding Map of Desfiladero de los Gaitanes

The Desfiladero de los Gaitanes was officially declared a Nature Site by the regional government of Andalusia in 1989. Two years before, in 1987, it had been classified as a Special Protection Area (SPA) for birds by the European Union. Since 2006, Desfiladero de los Gaitanes forms part of the Transcontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean (which is shared by Spain and Morocco), and of the list of Sites of Community Importances (SCI) in the Mediterranean Biogreographic Region.

Birds are the group of vertebrates with the highest species richness, an also the easier to watch in the Nature Site.
