The Gironde estuary, zone of biodiversity


The Gironde estuary, a centuries-old waterway, is also the location of major environmental issues such as marine biodiversity, wetlands and water quality.

Atlantic Port of Bordeaux, whose terminals span the length of the Gironde Estuary, has a dual responsibility:

  • As a manager, the port preserves this biodiverse resource;
  • As a developer, the port incorporates it in its development policy.
