The hidden treasures of the Reserve of Plounérin

Go to discover a 160-hectare reserve on the Pink Granite Coast, witness the heritage inherited from Breton know-how and cultivate the essential.

The reserve

This 160 ha space represents a singular natural heritage inherited from the Breton agricultural system of the beginning of the last century. Its value is explained both by the physical conditions of the environment (humidity, poverty of the soil, acidity) and by human activities (grazing, mowing, afforestation…).
The successive inventories and registrations found their culmination in 2016 with the classification as a Regional Nature Reserve. The originality of the site is to associate public owners for 36% and private for 64%. All volunteers, the latter are committed to a collaborative development project. The objectives are both to protect the natural heritage, while maintaining human activities, compatible with the conservation of the mosaic of habitats. The variety of environments means a wealth of flora and fauna. To date, 1,200 animal and plant species have been inventoried, some of which are rare or protected. Another particularity is the fragmentation of the reserve, which is divided into 98 non-contiguous parcels. This fragmented perimeter is a step in a global and long-term process.

The Hidden Treasures of the Reserve

Discover the Regional Nature Reserve of Plounérin and its thousand facets through its bizarre plants and little-known animals: Camargue horses, Scottish cows, butterflies, dragonflies and other insects. This is a great way to learn about the animals of the region and to discover their environment and their funny stories.

*In October, this walk will honor the animals of autumn and the Breton language: this language teaches us many things about nature.
