Fauna & Flora in the Gorges du Verdon - Part 1

It's not a secret : the Gorges du Verdon site is exceptional. More preserved than the upper Gorges, the Bass Gorges du Verdon are the natural theater of fauna and flora of rare diversity.
At the foot of these steep cliffs, in the heart of the wild Provencal nature, discover thanks to Location Nautic, the non-exhaustive richness of the fauna and flora of the lower part of the Gorges du Verdon.

Wild animals in nature in the reliefs

Particularly fond of altitude and rocky areas, the chamois has taken up residence in the Gorges du Verdon. It is not impossible that you can see this mammal of the mountains.
In the low scrublands near the hiking trails, you will be able to see wild goats, deer, wild boar or ibex. These wild animals cohabit peacefully in this preserved natural environment, perhaps you will have the opportunity to cross or see one of them at the bend of a path.

On the edge and under water: the aquatic world of Verdon

During your boat trip on the Gorges du Verdon with Location Nautic, familiarize yourself with the rich aquatic fauna of the site. First of all the fishermen's birds. On the lookout for fish, the gray heron spreads its long neck to dominate the entire river.
More discreet but equally fond of fish, the kingfisher is easily seen. Its blue, white and red plumage stands out above the water. Its presence is a reliable natural indicator of the good quality of the water in the aquatic environment it inhabits.
Along the water you will also see ducks and ygnes nesting in the Bass Gorges.
Underwater, the ecosystem is also provided by the presence of freshwater fish such as brown trout, perch, pike, pikeperch, roach and bleak especially.
At the edge of the water, you will certainly have the opportunity to see nutria join the underwater entrance of their burrows.
