Welcome to alas ecology
Solar Saltworks have produced salt by solar evaporation since the dawn of human civilization. Nevertheless, recognition of the unique coastal ecosystems that developed in parallel with the evolution of solar sea salt production process is often lacking.
Current Solar Saltworks are steady state, constructed coastal ecosystems, where regular and hyper saline environments coexist and establish high significant shelters for wildlife. Hundreds of protected bird species depend on Solar Saltworks to feed and/or nest.
