How can I help?
It is important that re-establishment, conservation and awareness-raising efforts be pursued to protect this rare and threatened species. As rosettes are very difficult to spot, you can help protect the thistle by taking a few precautions:
- Walk on the coast and in area devoid of vegetation
- Avoid areas that are marked out
- Avoid searching out for colonies; to observe the thistle, go to the Havre-Saint-Pierre marina
Your cooperation is necessary for the survival of this unique resource!
