A protected island

The Natura 2000 network is aimed at protecting natural diversity in Europe by forming a European network of sites containing habitats (natural environments) and/or species that are important for the community (or of European interest, i.e. endangered at European level). Some of these sites are more sensitive and rarer than others, so take greater priority. On Belle-Île, for example, cliff-top vegetation and all of the marine habitats are of community interest; the moors with Cornish heath and the fixed dunes are high-priority.
