The high plateau of Aubrac, the Causse Méjean, the Mont Aigoual, the causses of Blandas and of Larzac aren’t under pressure from agribusiness, to say the least! Only extensive breeding is practised, as well as some cultivation for animal feed.
The sheep and cattle trails are free of industrial intrusion and also, forest largely covers these biologically natural environments. Nature is present, as well as a rich biodiversity of species.
The low population density also plays an important role, leaving large open spaces from one village to another. Nature is maintained there, but not necessarily massacred!
The Cévennes National Park, created in 1970, has contributed with perseverance to the reasonable protection of sites between Aigoual and Causses.
