France - Born in 1978

Nature needs space and time to blossom, regenerate and establish itself in the long term. Nature reserves are refuges of biodiversity that were set up by the public authorities in France to protect and observe the fauna and flora that have been damaged by urbanisation, land division or the total decline of ecosystems.
Morbihan has five official nature reserves within its boundaries, constituting five precious sanctuaries for wildlife that we have decided to explore, observe and study, with support from the Departmental Council. Emmanuel Berthier is a trained naturalist who lives on the Gulf of Morbihan coast. He is passionate about these sensory areas, where humans are never more than a passing guest. From the mists of winter through to the first blooms of spring, he spent time observing this unspoilt nature, visiting the Moors of Monteneuf, the Loc’h ponds in Guidel, the marshes of Séné, the island of Groix and the area around the lake of Guerlédan, with its moors and forests. His photography reveals the wild and fragile life in a Brittany that is concerned about its future.
