Summer holidaymakers enjoy an exceptional setting, renowned for its biodiversity of namely over 300 bird species.
Ranked Natura 2000 since 2007, the coastal area is internationally recognized for the exceptional value of its wetlands. In September 2021, the site was granted the RAMSAR classification, thus recognizing its exceptional environmental value as well as the preservation efforts led by associations and authorities.
Maintaining the delicate balance between preservation and development is at the heart of the local councilors’ concerns. Tréguennec’s town council initiated a motion of support to the Pays Bigouden’s biodiversity which was backed by most the area’s local councils. In the spring of 2022, this motion was unanimously voted by the Community Council of Pays Bigouden Sud (cf. biodiversity motion link)
