|Kabli Nature Reserve|
|Area||733 ha (1,810 acres)|
A birdwatching tower was built here in 1969, and the area was designated a protected area in 1991. In 2007, the area was granted a higher degree of protection. The rich bird-life continues to be the main reason for these protective measures, as the coastal waters and fragile water meadows lining the Gulf of Riga here is an important stopover for migratory birds. Between 10,000 and 20,000 birds are ringed here every season. In addition, migratory bats and insects have been studied in the nature reserve.
