Already during pre-historic times, the rich archipelago flora and fauna offered several alternative food sources for the first inhabitants of Finland after the Ice Age. Through repeated immigrations from the west in the Mid-dle Ages (1000-1300 AD) the people in the area are mainly of Swedish origin. Thus 80% of the people in the area are speaking...

Baie de l'Aiguillon - Network Natura 2000 - France - L'Aiguillon-sur-Mer
La Baie de l’Aiguillon est donc à l’interface de deux écosystèmes : l’écosystème marin du Pertuis Breton et l’agro-écosystème du Marais Poitevin. Cette situation donne lieu à la confrontation des eaux continentales et marines, qui permet la mise en place de formations biologiques typiques des milieux estuariens ou des golfes fermés à la sédimentation très active.  Natura 2000 site.
One of the great attractions of this park is its highly varied landscape. Its vegetation is influenced by its location between two large regions of European flora: the Eurosiberian, in the Atlantic province; and the Mediterranean in the Carpetan-Leonese province. For this reason the vegetation alternates between the broadleaf forests characteristic of humid climate zones, and evergreen forests. The inhabitants of the area use the land for grazing and producing fodder, in rotation with rye crops.
