The Ecrins peaks clamber for the fresh high altitude air then tumble out beyond the confines of our region creating a dramatic exit away from our beautiful door step. They shouldn’t be overlooked though as they are home to the following:
Flora: 2500 species including 216 plants listed on the red list of rare and endangered flora and 389 species are endemic to the Alps or have an area of arctic-alpine distribution.
Fauna: 75 mammals, 233 birds, 16 reptiles, 10 amphibians, 21 fish, 56 dragonflies, 70 locusts and grasshoppers, 222 butterflies, 744 moths.
