MERCANTOUR NATIONAL PARK: PROTECTING BIODIVERSITY!
In Mercantour National Park, ibex, chamois, mouflons, marmots and birds can be encountered while taking a trail! The first mission of the Park is to protect and enhance the natural environments, the flora and fauna, and the surrounding cultural heritage and landscapes. The “National park” name is recognized throughout the world as the highest level of quality and protection in terms of natural spaces. A variety of actions are undertaken with a view to sustainable development and raising visitor awareness. In this aim, Mercantour National Park makes an atlas available to you, listing all the wild species sighted by its agents since its creation in 1979. Every new sighting is added in real time to the sheets for each species, which can be viewed in the spirit of sharing and enriching knowledge on Alpine biodiversity.
