The Egadi Islands archipelago, located in the Sicily Channel, includes Favignana, Marettimo, Levanzo and the small rocks of Formica and Maraone. This area is of remarkable natural and environmental interest; it is characterized by a variety of vegetation, some of which are endemic or of phytogeographical significance. The archipelago is also important for its fauna: it shows colonies of marine birds and the presence of rare species like the Sicilian wall lizard on Marettimo. The surrounding seabeds are characterized by meadows of Posidonia oceanica, a significant habitat for many fish species. Some seabeds reveals formations of Lithophyllum lichenoides, which host rich faunal communities. The entire area is of significant importance both from a landscape and environmental perspective.
