By all appearances, the Park is not quite the pristine natural environment it used to be. Over the years, human activity has taken its toll on it. The impact of intensive agriculture, pollution, climate change, poaching, mass tourism and other factors, is evident not only to experts but also to the local community.
These issues pose a significant threat to the flora and fauna of the area. It is worth mentioning that the Lagoon of Karavasta is home to a large population of Dalmatian Pelicans. In addition to disturbances during the breeding season, the island on which they have built their nests faces the constant threat of erosion caused by the rising water levels. The locals feel the pressure too. Many families make ends meet through the riches of the Park. Such is the case of a local shepherd. His herd has been significantly reduced due to the transformation of grazing lands into agricultural lands, thus putting his livelihood at stake.
THE THREAT OF HUMAN ACTIVITY DOESNโ€™T STOP THERE. BECAUSE OF ITS GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION, THE PARK ATRACTS THE ATTENTION ON MANY INVESTORS.
