Évaluation historique des herbus du Mont-Saint-Michel au droit des aménagements et impact du tourisme autour de ces nouveaux aménagements (barrage, parking, pont-passerelle…)

Abstract : The constant progression of the schorre vegetation around Mont-Saint-Michel was a great concern. To stem this phenomenon, a project to restore the maritime character of Mont-Saint-Michel has been launched. A study of the dynamics of the salt meadows over the past decade shows the first results of this project, which ended in 2015. Since 2010, the surface area of the salt meadows has been decreasing and more significantly in recent years. This decline in vegetation is very visible around Mont-Saint-Michel where the West and East salt meadows have lost 134.8 hectares. However, the RCM project should not be named as the sole author of this spectacular regression since the Couesnon and Selune, due to their divagation in the bay, also play an important role. World-famous site, the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is experiencing mass tourism. In 2018, 2.6 million people came to visit this emblematic place. This strong interest causes anthropic pressures on the salt meadows of Mont-Saint-Michel, creating trampling zones. A path of about 150 meters long is used daily by tourists to reach the footbridge, while a signposted path is present a few metres away. This causes the destruction of vegetation. To contain trampling, public awareness tools such as animations, exhibitions or the installation of information panels are proposed.
