It is a protected natural area that belongs to the Conservatoire du Littoral. It has been managed by the Camargue Regional Nature Park since January 1, 2014. Since its acquisition, this territory opens to the public, with a clear orientation towards environmental education actions. It is intended for the protection of nature while integrating local socio-economic activities respectful of natural environments. The estate of la Palissade results from the combined action of the Rhone and the sea. It belongs to the now rare and threatened family of Mediterranean wetlands. It extends his landscapes to imprecise boundaries near the mouth of the Great Rhone, an important area on the emotional level, but also scientific.
