Natural values of the area
The Brugent river is fairly clean of contaminants and has a good state of conservation of its environment. We can find a well-preserved riparian forest preserving its natural features. In addition, these water points attract numerous animal species to drink, such as many native and migratory birds.
Specially in spring and summer, this space is full of life and becomes an essential habitat for fauna, that arrive for reproduction, feeding, or shelter.
Some species deserve special attention, as they are of great interest or threatened: the otter, the European owl, the white-clawed crayfish and the Mediterranean barbel are some examples. To see all the fauna and flora that inhabit in this area, click here.
