A diversity of landscapes
The 50 miles (80 km) of beaches of the Allied landings in Normandy in 1944 are bordered by varied landscapes. Imposing cliffs alternate with green areas of groves bordering sandy beaches. Here and there, hills of Cambrian red sandstone emerge. On the border of the English Channel and the Cotentin peninsula, the Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Regional Nature Park preserves the peat bogs of this wetland. Such diversity is monitored and protected by the Norman Agency for Biodiversity and Sustainable Development (ANBDD) and the French Office for Biodiversity (OFB), among others.
