Muddy foreshore, dry dunes and failures, marshes and reedbeds, wet meadows, hedgerows tamarisk groves and thickets ... A beautiful mosaic of environments settled on this piece of coast, hosting a multitude of species ....

Ce territoire était encore immergé à l’époque romaine quand sédiments argileux, cordons dunaires et galets le coupèrent définitivement de l’océan vers l’an mille.
L’homme ne tarda pas à exploiter le sable, faisant apparaître des fossés et dépressions ; la nappe phréatique, depuis affleurante, laisse apparaître des plans d'eau douce complémentaires à la lagune saumâtre, parfois encore inondée par les tempêtes.
Estran vaseux, dunes sèches et pannes, marais et roselières, prairies humides, haies de tamaris, bosquets et fourrés…Une belle mosaïque de milieux s’est installée sur ce petit coin de littoral, accueillant une multitude d’espèces....
Gérée par la Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux,
la Réserve Naturelle du Marais d'Yves ( 53ème du nom) s'étend sur 192 ha et se situe en Charente-Maritime entre La Rochelle et Rochefort sur la commune d'Yves.
