Camargue, France, 1949-2002


  • How to

Increasing economic exploitation in the 1940s of the Camargue, a nature reserve of unique scientific interest situated within the delta of the River Rhone, attracted the attention of environmentalists around Europe. Nicholson, as Director-General of the Nature Conservancy, became involved in efforts to safeguard the most important areas of the Camargue, though his ornithological interest in the site began at an earlier stage.

Nicholson's known visits to the Camargue were made in 1949, 1956 and 1994.
