Flora and fauna in Montenegro are very rich and diverse. Montenegro is the only country in Europe with the bird sanctuary (Skadar Lake National Park, 40000 ha) hosting pelican breeding site. The lake ranges carp, trout, bleak and such rare water plants as kesorania and water-nymphs. Herons, sea ravens and black ibises are frequent guests to this miraculous lake.
