This study attempts to give a broad overview about the ecology of the Amphibians and Reptiles living in the Massa National Park Project (Agadir, Morocco) in such a way that can be directly applied to the management plan of the project. Then, the taxonomic composition, species richness, use of space, time patterns and some estimate of the species abundances are included. Furthermore, background knowledge about the energetics of these ectotherms, as well as general information about the importance of Amphibians and Reptiles as predators and preys in mediterranean zones are discussed to place the role of this group in the ecosystem as a whole. The relative importance of this role, their accessibility in the field and the great emotional impact they produce in the public, let us to remark the interest of the herpetofauna for environmental education. This information can be directly applied to the management plan, not only for description but also for evaluation and prescription purposes. Several concrete applications on the extensive surveys, public access, education projects and management of the area for demonstration purposes are discussed.
