Birds discovery trip on the Pesquiers salt marsh
Salin des Pesquiers
Route de Giens
Discover the ornithological richness of the Pesquiers salt marsh.
This excursion takes you to the site of the Pesquiers salt marsh, in the central part of the double tombolo of the Giens peninsula, which is only accessible by guided tour.
The salt flats of Hyères (made up of the Vieux Salins and the Salin des Pesquiers), represent one of the most remarkable natural spaces of the Var coastline and there are more than 350 species of birds, the place being favorable to the development of biodiversity. The two sites have been the property of the Conservatoire du littoral since 2001 and are managed by the Communauté d'agglomération Toulon Provence Méditerranée in partnership with the Commune de Hyères and the Parc national de Port-Cros. The LPO PACA is in charge of the reception of the public, the guided tours and realizes the ornithological follow-up of the sites.
A guide of the LPO will share with you his knowledge of the site and the biology of the species, their distribution as well as anecdotes on their behavior. A telescope, binoculars and a small reference booklet of observable birds will be at your disposal to make your experience as complete as possible.
This outing is designed to allow everyone to enjoy a real immersion in the world of ornithology, and is suitable for beginners as well as for experienced birders.
