- Parc naturel régional du Haut-Languedoc
The Parc naturel régional du Haut-Languedoc is a regional natural park situated in the south of the Massif Central within the Aveyron, Hérault and Tarn departments of France. These areas are considered the Haut-Languedoc, compared to the Bas-Languedoc.
Administered by the Fédération des Parcs Naturels Régionaux de France, it was created on 22 October 1973 and revised 17 August 1999. It has an area of 2,605 km², with 82,000 people living within its boundaries.
The park comprises a very diverse range of countryside, which is why seven different areas have been officially defined within it:
- Montagne noire
- Monts de Lacaune
- Monts d'Orb
- Plateau des Lacs
- Vignes et Vallées
The park provides a habitat for more than 240 species of birds, in a stunningly diverse range of climate and scenery. It also provides a home for mouflons, successfully reintroduced from Corsica.
