Camargue and its salt flats
The Camargue, a site of predilection
Its mild winter, its warm summer and its bodies of water make the Salin d’Aigues-Mortes a wetland with an invaluable heritage. The world’s second richest biological resource after the tropical forest, wetlands play a major role in maintaining biodiversity.
Migratory birds are little disturbed in the vast expanses of the Camargue. It is a large food reservoir and a breeding ground of primary importance for the birds that stay there during spring and summer. First reserve of pink flamingos in Europe, discover a unique fauna: 200 species of birds, including 157 protected species.
The wilderness as a heritage
The salt industry of Aigues-Mortes has preserved thousands of hectares of natural areas on the Mediterranean coast, where an original ecosystem shelters an exceptional fauna and flora. This space maintained by the salt marshes allows the development of a rich ecosystem of its own.
