Eritrean coastal desert

WWF Abstract

If you walked through the Eritrean Coastal Desert, chances are good that you'd think you were in a barren landscape where few species could survive. Sandy or gravelly plains, an occasional rocky outcrop, and scattered salt-loving grasses and shrubs would be all you'd view in the landscape around you. But amazingly enough, even this terrain supports some interesting wildlife species, including gazelles, sea turtles, and huge numbers of migrating birds of prey.
