Most of the natural protected sites in the Granville Terre et Mer area are acquired by the Conservatoire du Littoral, which in the Manche département delegates the management of its land to the Syndicat Mixte des Espaces Littoraux de la Manche (SyMEL), an offshoot of the Conseil Départemental.
Practically all accessible to the public, each of these areas are to be respected by following a few instructions. They call on everyone’s common sense:
- Take the marked trails to avoid trampling fragile areas,
- Leave no trace of your passage (garbage, cigarette butts, masks…),
- Avoid picking plants (some are protected),
- Observe the animals without disturbing them (discretion is part of the game to have time to spot the most beautiful species).
