The climate of the area is semi-arid, specific to semi-desert and dry steppe. Types and phytomass of flora are poor here and plants therefore adapt to the water and saltiness regime of the area. Sea coastal sand plants account for (42,6%), meadows with jigilgamish and paz grass for (13,2%), one-year saline grasses for (5,2%) of the total. Ephemeras also develop well in early spring. Living in the drier areas are gazelle, jackal, fox, rabbit and badger. In the Caspian Sea live seal and various fishes, birds such as silver gull, wheezing swan, grey and red-headed black ducks, white-eyed black ducks, big white bittern, sandpiper, bald-coot, marsh belibagli, sea bozcha and other migrant birds.
