The project area hosts important populations of three priority marine species, i.e.  Μediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus), one of the most threatened marine mammals in the world, Mediterranean Shag (Phalacrocorax aristotelis desmarestii) and Audouin’s Gull (Larus audouinii), all species of conservation concern, on national, EU and global level. Therefore their conservation and/or the improvement of their conservation status are of high significance both nationally and globally.
