The Baht River is a watercourse in Morocco that is tributary to the Sebou River. Also known as the Oued Beht, this river rises in the Middle Atlas mountain range.[1] The river is impounded by the El Kansera irrigation dam about 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Sidi Slimane.[2]

Natural history[edit]

In the upper parts of the watershed within the Middle Atlas is the prehistoric range of the endangered primate Barbary macaque, which animal prehistorically had a much larger range in North Africa.[3]
