Camargue Regional Natural ParkFor many centuries, the Camargue has been the scene of a seemingly never-ending struggle between man and nature. Although the construction of dykes in the eighteenth century was an effective remedy against flooding by water from the Rhône river and nearby salt water sources, there remained the task of finding a way to bring together the environment and human activities – whether agricultural, touristic or otherwise.

The Camargue Regional Natural Park, the motto of which is ‘to inform, and be informed, in order to better protect’, was established in 1970.
It covers over 210,000 acres.
