Sado Estuary Nature Reserve

Sado Estuary Nature Reserve | tourism | Scoop.it
Covering more than 23,000 hectares (57,000 acres), the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve in Setubal was established to protect the estuary.
Portugal Dream Coast's insight:

The Sado estuary has been declared a reserva natural (23,971 ha), Ramsar Site and a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA), largely on account of the 300-plus species of vertebrate recorded here.

It is a special place for birdwatching, including white storks, herons and flamingos.

The fish species include white bream, grey mullet, skate, sole and the Lusitanian toadfish.

Bottle-nosed dolphins in their natural habitat can be seen and there is an important colony of them in the River Sado.
