Bird sanctuary

Situated between Dolus et St-Pierre-d'Oléron, this 10ha park of woodland and marshes serves both as a bird sanctuary (taking care of more than 600 birds every year) and a wildlife reserve. Herons, egrets, pelicans and barnacle geese can be found here in enclosures resembling their natural habitat.
