Rives du Loup, a Natura 2000 site
Or how to protect and discover the Côte d’Azur’s biodiversity!
What is Natura 2000? It is a network of natural sites created to preserve rare or fragile wild, animal and plant species, and their inhabitants. The Antibes Sophia-Antipolis urban area is responsible for 3 sites in the department, including the Gorges du Loup. Its role is to ensure that activities are reconciled with the preservation of the natural heritage. It is not uncommon during a walk on the banks of the Loup to come across a multitude of animals: ducks, bluebirds, and even rock swallows… Good to know: dogs (on a lead) are allowed in the park.
