Site summary
The extensive floodplains were well surveyed in 1981-1984; extrapolating these maximum estimates to the whole IBA suggest that it supported five million waterbirds, including more than 1% of the world population of 22 species, and significant numbers of three near threatened species, and another 11 restricted-range or savanna-biome-restricted species.
