The Ebro Delta is one of the most important wetlands in Southern Europe.

Here, a large number of water birds find an excellent breeding habitat, food and resting area in their migration.

A huge area in Ebro Delta has been transformed into rice fields, which attracts birds such as the Glossy Ibis, Purple Heron or Purple Swamphen, among others. The channels net is also an interesting habitat for Great Crested Grebes, Little Bitterns and Squacco Herons. The regions freshwater lagoons host a good number of Common Terns, Little Terns, Black-headed Gulls and some passerine like the Reed Bunting, Moustached Warbler or Great Reed-Warbler. Closer to the seashore there are saltwater ponds with Flamingos, Avocets, Kentish Plovers, Collared Pratincoles and Audouin Gulls.
