Camargue National Reserve

 

The reserve occupies an area of the Rhone delta between the Greater and the Lesser Rhone, with the sea to the south; its principal feature is the Vaccarès Lagoon. Annual rainfall is about 560mm; the rain falls chiefly in the autumn and winter causing temporary flooding; however, intensive evaporation in the summer, due mainly to wind, takes off about 1400mm water and dries the land again. The deficit is covered by water pumped from the Rhône. The salt groundwater is responsible for the development of characteristic halophitic vegetation.
