2015 was marked by a significant discovery: proof that the Mediterranean shag (Phalacrocorax aristoletis desmarestii) has successfully nested on the cliffs of the Rocher. The only known colony in continental France is in Bouches-du-Rhône, and a nesting couple has not been seen in Var since 2006. This discovery is the first official report of the species nesting in this sector of the Mediterranean coastline. The Principality now occupies a central position in the species’ expansion zone.
