The Atlas cedar forests are a refuge for holm oak, Spanish juniper, Phoenician juniper and common juniper, series of endemic species of candytuft species and wild relatives of almond, common pear and apple. The biosphere reserve landscape brings together the national parks of Ifrane, Khenifra and Oriental High Atlas. It represents a safe haven for the Maghreb leopard, endemic Barbary macaque, Barbary leopard, the rare serval, Cuvier’s gazelle and the lesser kestrel. Traditional medicine is very popular in the villages of the Atlas cedar reserve and in the cities where street vendors display all sorts of plants and extracted natural products. The local community of Berber origins living in the area still preserves the language and tradition.
