French National Parks

August 2021
Protected natural areas

French National Parks are home to territories remarkable for their natural and cultural diversity.
They celebrate the respectful balance between man, who has shaped the landscapes through his activities (pastoralism, agroforestry...) and nature, some of whose environments have remained out of reach, in areas ranging from Alpine peaks to the depths of the sea, through tropical forests.

Their distribution on the French territory allows the protection and enhancement of a multitude of species and natural and rural areas. As the flagship of environmental protection, their network benefits from national and international recognition that promotes the excellence of their management methods, as well as the biological and geological quality of their territories.
The national parks, in perpetual movement, are intended to pass on to future generations preserved heritage, allowing everyone to benefit from spaces of resourcefulness.
