The third international workshop on Mediterranean and West African flamingos was held at Djerba, Tunisia, on 26 November 2004. The workshop, organised by Arnaud Béchet from Tour du Valat, was attended by 33 participants from 10 countries. Twelve communications facilitated assessment of the research conducted by the Flamingo Network in the north of the Mediterranean (France, Spain and Italy) and Mauritania, as well as a review of the status of flamingos from Tunisia to Morocco. It appeared to be a priority to develop the network of research and conservation of flamingos toward North Africa where, in spite of the importance of wintering population and suspicions of breeding, band resightings remain scarce together with counts that are also rarely reliable. The participants have emphasised the need to apply for funding aimed at building collaborative projects with the south of the Mediterranean in order to increase the skills and logistics required to develop monitoring, research and conservation activities in this region.

Le 3ième atelier international sur les Flamants de Méditerranée et de l'Afrique de l'Ouest s'est tenu à Djerba, Tunisie le 26 novembre 2004. Trente trois participants provenant de 10 pays ont assisté à cet atelier organisé par Arnaud Béchet de la Tour du Valat. Douze interventions ont permis de faire le point sur les travaux du réseau Flamant dans le nord de la Méditerranée (France, Espagne et Italie) et en Mauritanie ainsi que de passer en revue le statut des Flamants de la Tunisie au Maroc. Il est apparut urgent de développer le réseau d'étude et de conservation des Flamants vers l'Afrique du Nord où malgré l'importance des populations hivernantes, et les soupçons de reproduction, les lectures de bagues restent peu nombreuses et les dénombrements rares et souvent peu fiables. L'accent a été mis sur le besoin de trouver des financements pour monter des projets conjoints avec le sud de la Méditerranée afin d'augmenter les compétences et les moyens logistiques nécessaires pour y développer des activités de suivi, de recherche et de conservation.
