The archipelago of Ragueneau

Among the most important, cormorant, which alone accounts for more than 5000 individuals, colonies of common eiders, sea gulls and herring gulls. In addition, several other species, including black ducks, terns, razorbills, scoters, large and small knights, great blue herons and sandpipers are also very present in the region. We should not forget our colonies of seals (harbor seals) and gray seals (about 100 individuals) who spend the summer on the sandbanks and reefs discovered by the tide.
