About this book

From the preface:

"The 25 species of marine mammals observed off the coast of Brittany constitute a remarkable natural heritage that should be better known and preserved.

It is for this purpose that the Regional Council, aware of the strong interest for Brittany in terms of marine biodiversity, wished in 1994, through the signing with the City of Brest of a "nature contract", to support the work of the Océanopolis marine mammal research laboratory.

This pedagogical work, which concludes this 5-year contract, aims to highlight the scientific work undertaken and to make readers aware of the fragile nature of all species as well as the special responsibility that Brittany has in their knowledge and conservation.

This technical document allows us to have a precise assessment of the state of the populations in Brittany and presents the different coastal sites frequented by the bottlenose dolphin and the gray seal. Identification sheets of the ten main marine mammal species of the region are collected at the end of the book."


Summary in French:
Les 25 espèces de mammifères marins observées au large des côtes bretonnes constituent un patrimoine naturel remarquable qu'il convient de mieux connaître et de préserver.

C'est dans cet objectif que le Conseil régional, conscient du fort intérêt pour la Bretagne en terme de biodiversité marine, a souhaité en 1994, à travers la signature avec la Ville de Brest d 'un "contrat nature", soutenir les travaux du laboratoire d 'étude des mammifères marins d'Océanopolis.

Le présent ouvrage à caractère pédagogique, qui conclut ce contrat de 5 ans, a pour vocation de valoriser les travaux scientifiques entrepris et de sensibiliser les lecteurs sur le caractère fragile de l'ensemble des espèces ainsi que la responsabilité particulière qu'a la Bretagne dans leur connaissance et leur conservation.

Ce document technique nous permet d'avoir un bilan précis sur l'état des peuplements en Bretagne et présente les différents sites littoraux fréquentés par le grand dauphin et le phoque gris. Des fiches d'identification des dix principales espèces de mammifères marins de la région sont rassemblées en fin d 'ouvrage.
