Description

The Îles de Bonny are located in a complex of temporary islands in the Loire. The site is enclosed between the Loire and the Cheuille, which flows into the river at the tip of the islands. It includes a mosaic of alluvial plant formations typical of the major bed of the Loire (meadows, alluvial forest, ponds and sandy shores, etc.). With the aim of long-term preservation, this 86-hectare site has been managed by the Conservatoire d'Espaces Naturels Centre-Val de Loire since 2004 through a 15-year agreement with the Bonny-sur-Loire town council for 30 hectares and through a temporary occupation permit granted by the Direction Départementale des Territoires for 56 hectares of public river land.
