A great diversity of habitats and rare species. The 26 habitats of community interest (moors, wetlands, forests, lawns, cliffs and scree, etc.) cover 12 ha or 933% of the site!

It is a European label awarded to sites selected for their richness in natural environments and remarkable or threatened animal or plant species on a European scale. These are habitats or species of Community interest.

The site is home to 11 species of community interest:
- 5 species of bats

- green Buxbaumie, a small moss that grows on dead wood
- Aurélio's Lizard
- the Pyrenean Otter and Desman, semi-aquatic mammals.

Main issues:
- Preservation of remarkable lawn and moorland environments by supporting pastoralism
- Conservation of forest habitats favorable to saproxylic insects and bats
- Maintenance of the quality of aquatic habitats for the European Otter, the Desman of the Pyrenees...
- Preserve the habitats of the Aurélio Lizard.

Animation of the site: At the heart of the territorial dynamic, the animation of the site consists in associating the local actors in the management and the conservation of their natural heritage to set up sustainable actions.
