A Preserved Environment
A Sanctuary for Biodiversity
From olive trees to snow-capped peaks, the Parc National du Mercantour hosts a fauna and flora of a rare wealth and variety, even on a global scale. Since its creation in 1979, the park has been committed to re-introducing rare or endangered species in a natural way. You can watch gypaetes barbus (vultures), have an unforgettable encounter with wolves at Parc Alpha, or admire more than 2,000 species of plants – including 40 species which do not exist anywhere else in the world.
