Saharan flooded grasslands

WWF Abstract

During the rainy season, waters flood into the Sudd swamps of southern Sudan, bringing nutrients and new life to the dry, cracked ground. As one of the largest floodplains in Africa, the Sudd provides watering and feeding grounds for large populations of migratory mammals and migratory birds. And because this floodplain is located on the edge of the Sahara Desert, it's a key watering area for many species as they move across the landscape.
