The Estuaires Picards and Mer d'Opale Marine Nature Park is a marine protected area facing the United Kingdom.
The Estuaires Picards and Mer d’Opale Marine Nature Park, this protected marine area created in 2012, covers 118 kilometres of coast, from Ambleteuse to Le Tréport. It is managed by the Office français de la biodiversité, a public institution dedicated to biodiversity protection, under the supervision of the ecological transition ministry and the agriculture and food ministry. There are 8 marine nature parks in all in France.
The Park meets 3 objectives : improve knowledge, ensure the protection of the marine environment and support the sustainable development of maritime activities that depend on it.
In order to carry out its missions, the Park has a management board. Made up of 60 members reflecting the diversity of the sea stakeholders, they meet 3 to 4 times per year to decide the action program of the Park, to provide advice or to award grants. The decisions of management board are based on the management plan, the Park’s roadmap for 15 years.
