Title of the project
Hunters and wetlands: Action! FDC Gironde
The Pachan area is an estuarine marsh which suffered from the land reclamation.
When purchasing the area, the hunting federation has decided to restore the wetland by creating three ponds (15 hectares) in the south-part.
Good hydraulic management practices have led to a permanent wetland.
One farmer is also leading cattle extensive grazing and other agricultural work.
Placed on the western flyways of migratory birds, the site plays a staging area for 148 species of birds.
It hosts include: waders, waterfowl, shorebirds, raptors diurnal and nocturnal passerines.
Some species are remarkable and protected by Birds Directive.
