What about work?
What I like is to share the pleasure of people who are amazed. It's very gratifying and it makes things easier and more enjoyable.
It is also very satisfying, during the baptisms, to succeed in making someone who was not at ease gain confidence and who, suddenly, can enjoy the moment.
For him, the National Park Spirit brand :
First of all, it's a guarantee of quality for people. We realize that more and more people know what a national park is, but for the vast majority, Port-Cros National Park is the island. So there is undoubtedly an educational need, and we plan to increase this awareness.
