Lake Ichkeul is now the most important wildfowl refuge in North Africa because most of the other lakes in this area of Tunisia have suffered from drainage. The study examines the reasons why there is a need for the establishment of a park in the Ichkeul region. It reviews the management objectives along with the principal factors influencing its management. The main part of the study describes the nature conservation programme with particular attention to the problem of reconciling the demand for water and continued wildlife interest.
