The lake rests inside to what is called the Ichkeul National Park which stretches upon 12,600 hectares of land. The park was declared a UNESCO World heritage site in 1980.The Lake and the surrounding wetlands are a place where thousands of migrating birds visit each year. Due, to the construction of dams nearby, the water supply to the Lake has largely been affected. The number of migrating birds has also been reduced. The park itself has more than 400 species of semi-arid flora most of which are Mediterranean plants. Theses plant species have also suffered due to the increasing encroachment of agriculture on nearby lands. The increasing salinity, most of the fresh water plants have now been replaced by salt water plants. Steps have been taken by the Tunisian government to preserve the natural environment of this beautiful place As far as tourism is considered then the lake is a beautiful site. There is also an isolated mountain which is a part of the Ichkeul National Park. Some hot springs located at the north eastern edge of the mountain, are popular among locals and foreigners alike.
