For this reason, many people bathe there. Its environmental importance is great since it plays an important role in maintaining both the flora (rushes, poles, and reeds) and the fauna (fish, eels, water birds, turtles, etc) of the region. Each winter, the wetland of Moustou provides refuge to many aquatic birds (swans, herns, wild ducks) which enjoy the excellent climate. The wetland of Moustou is a protected area under the European Programme Natura 2000.
