The Narta Lagoon is among the key Albanian territories in terms of number of habitats of conservation concern. Many species of the lagoons’ flora are listed in the Red Data Book of Albania. Based on recent studies, the Narta Lagoon is considered to be the second most important habitat for wetland birds in Albania. Mallard (Anas platyrhyncos) and Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra) are the most abundant species, representing 47% and 35% of the national population respectively. The Narta Lagoon is the main place in Albania for wintering Great Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber roseus), Common Shelduck (Tadorna tadorna), Kentish Plover (Charadrius alexandrinus), Grey Plover (Pluvialis squatarola) and Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula). It is also important to mention the presence of Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus crispus) and Audouin's Gull (Larus audouinii), both of which are critically endangered in Albania.
