Algeria lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Though mainly covered by the Sahara Desert, the country is very mountainous. The Zehrez Chergui chott is an expanse of salty water located south of Algiers, near Sidi Bakhti. It is a relatively rare wetland in the Mediterranean region, especially given the extent of its surface area and watershed. The Zehrez is a vast depression where the waters from many tributaries accumulate, its impervious soil preventing subsurface seepage. Protected by the Ramsar Convention, Zehrez Chergui is distinguished by its rich, diverse fauna including many rare and endemic species.
