About National Species - The Mediterranean Shag - (Set Mint)

2015 was marked by a significant discovery: proof that the Mediterranean shag (Phalacrocorax aristoletis desmarestii) has successfully nested on the cliffs of the Rocher. The only known colony in continental France is in Bouches-du-Rhône, and a nesting couple has not been seen in Var since 2006.
